Not much to tell about me, really. When I was born, my parents placed me in a small wooden boat and pushed me out into the center of the Pulaski Skyway where I was rescued and ultimately raised by a pair of opposums. Sadly, they died when I was very young. At least I think they died. From there I joined the Merchant Marines and was the only toddler in World War II to sink a Japanese battleship while being burped. When I returned to the states, I got a job at Gimbels Department Store and have been there ever since even though they went out of business in 1986. I have always valued loyalty over money and if that's wrong, talk to my wife. You'd get along famously. I am the author of the humor collection, "The Barber's Conundrum and Other Stories" and write a comedy blog called The Monkey Bellhop. I live in NJ. I know. I wish you could all live here, too.

    She should check his breath, too, when he returns with the receipt!

    Look at that little health nut! If only she got to MLB players before the biogenesis thing.
