    I have done so much better than that, BL1Y–but I am guessing you have been repeatedly denied this weekend while others around you have partaken.  Unfortunately, some young, unsuspecting woman will be taken in by you and you will get your wish.

    – “Psst, Bob… not him…”

    – “Ummm, I guess you could say under this contract you have nothing left to fear but fear itself!”

    – “Still no, Bob.”

    – “Well, Mr. Washington, you’ve been fooled once, and under this contract you could say… well.. the point is you can’t get fooled again.”

    – “…. well done sir.”

    The person behind the camera was the only named partner…the Hoff.  It’s no wonder why the President wasn’t smiling.
