That was some funny shit :) Who is this Skippy guy, anyhow?

Beyond the fact that he is "Specialist Schwartz" and was probably posted in Texas at least once, I really don't know. This has been up a while, but I laugh out loud every time I read it.

Is that a quote from somewhere, Caleb? :) Sounds lyrical like a song.

Yeah, it's a song lyric. Unfortunately, it's a song lyric from the insect symphony in my head that is the soundtrack to my life. To hallucinate and yet be perfectly aware at all times that one is merely hallucinating-- that is the challenge. I learned this skill in high school.

And when you mention the insect symphony, I immediately pictured the song and dance routine with the roaches in Joe's Apartment.

That is quite a skill, and a useful one at that.
