  1. I need to see a Bigfoot! Askbhim what he thinks.

  2. Bigfoot in Knox County ? Maybe the Vols can recruit one and put it on the defensive line.

  3. As if there are any large primates there, other than Bubba at the Boar's Nest Inn. Seriously. The mountain gorilla of Africa is found in the mountains. The waste of time in these non-traditional territories boggles my mind. Now all of you go find one in the Pacific Northwest please, and I'll sit back in my armchair and cheer you on.

  4. A marching band!?!?!? I am so there!


    1. A marching band !, I love marching bands !

  5. Holy shit look at little Cliffie rocking the hell out of that ascot.

    Looks like he's about sail off into the sunset on the good ship lollipop.
