Goddamn, Joe!
I always kinda assumed all your stories were works of fiction (and, that you were actually writing them in some sort of institution).
Then, you write this & add a whole buncha pics that seem to fit the story.
Now I don't know what to think???

Oh, wait...I know exactly what to think: "Average" Joe is a complete misnomer- this shit is waaaayyy above average!

Well.. I don't even know where to begin... This was top notch sir..

I seriously laughed the whole way through... We've all been on bad camping trips.. but you sir.. well, you've taken it to another level.. I almost feel like I would like to meet this Magoo fella.. you know, for posterity's sake.. I'll bring my own food though..

Thank you for this... Seriously..

Thanks Joe, that's some top shelf shit. And sorry you had to experience that. I knew it would turn bad from the beginning, but never expected it to go that far. Next time, bring more booze.

Sometimes your host gets arrested on Bourbon Street and you spend half the night and the next morning looking for his truck parked in the quarter that contains all your luggage and fishing gear...

but most of the time (and even that one) it all works out ok.

This write-up is a travesty. You've libeled "Magoo", and under California law you should expect action.

Barbie is expecting, so there will be court-ordered paternity tests in your future . . . save for your brother, who apparently only availed himself of the "tradesman's entrance".

The organic chicken people are suing, too, for illegal reproduction of their corporate imagery plus unwarranted allegations of salmonella containment.

The Salmonella Association is also litigating . . . it just piles up.

I have a confession to make:

My first pass through this, I skipped the text and just enjoyed the photos. It gave me the impression of a fine adventure in the high country.

Then Lando asked (while sitting around the fire at the Luau) if I'd read it.

Now I have.

I'm thinking that Magoo must be Golden Beetle?

Laughed out loud many times. What a clusterfuck.
