hell it was talking about.

The schlizzle is

in the hunschdizzle.

And then I realized

hunschdizzle meant dog dish.

So I looked down

in the dog dish

and there was the key.

So I figured it out.

The schlizzle is in the

hunschdizzle is the key

is in the dog dish.


So I understand you

put in a new oil tank.

It's in the basement.

The old one was outside.

I'm amazed they were able to

My father pointed to me

and my brother and he said,

love the grapes, right?

But I guess it was also

a lie at the same time.

So what?

That's show business.
