Stole the "cc" moniker as it wasn't in use really and thought it suitable.

You're either too young or too old for "kettles;" the young don't care and the old don't want reminders, so fuck it.

Pie, nope don't care for it to be honest, although my MIL does a respectable peach pie. It's "pie" of another variety all together that gets me every time.

Misspelling words as some indicator of cleverness won't do either.

I tie flies, average-like.

Guys who begin with, "a fellow Drakian (and friend of mine) said I should throw up an intro," should also, like, just not bother.

IPA sucks; more hops don't make it better so fucking stop it.

Trout tossers ought to fuck off and continue doing so.

Page 5 heroes should keep their own counsel about strong language (glass houses dick), and spare us from whining about loneliness. Nobody cares and nobody left you the keys BTW.

Oh, and as for tits; tits are for kids silly fucking rabbit.

So I'm in right?

I'll be honest. I liked it a lot better than most of the cut-n-paste intros we've been getting lately. I'll take originality over 14 pictures of 12" trouts, requisite watch/DSFK/pie/whatevers(except my campfire pics, we need those) and googled tits. And I didn't even understand it....

You don’t like troots and bitter beers... Two strikes. But the line about kettles? Profound and poignant. Far as I’m concerned, stick around. But, I’ll get my own beer.
