    I once saw Jim Coombs drink 200 shots of tequila, each one chased with a shot of shoe polish filtered thru a newspaper, and then climb onto a chopped Harley and ride off into the sunset.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    If there had been a tie, the tie-breaker would have been an aspirin-eating contest.
