Hey Johny Tran, stop by my place later. I'll be firing up the backyard still for my next batch of moonshine while listening the the Wu Tang Clan. If by chance I don't see you, I'll say a prayer for you anyway before I pass out for the evening. Word up!

Mark all of Johnny Tran's comments as inappropriate and they will be deleted. Maybe he'll get the hint.
