Seems like just the other day we were driving while texting, blasted on K2 and bath salts, cutting lines of Percocet with a switchblade while stuffing our fat faces full of finger-licking horse-bacon, egg, and Virginia walnut grinders.

See you next year, so long as this Thousand Cankers rash doesn't take a turn for the worse.
