Gracie: Yes, he was so nice and thoughtful. Every night when he got off work he would bring home something for my mother.

George: What did he bring her?

Gracie: Father

No problem there for Chris, he would catch the Bourbon in his mouth on the way down.


Who has no problem finding the bottom of a glass. Properly chilled, I'd drink turpentine.
