Obnoxiousocks!

…but, for obvious reasons, I had yet to wear them.

That is, until today… after I fixed them.

Still obnoxious... but at least more accurate!

I say fuck Godwin.

Last month, my good friends Joe and Lisa gave me a small stack of vintage postcards for my birthday.

I’m going to post images of the fronts and backs of each postcard here, along with a transcription—or at least as accurate a transcription as I can come up with—of what’s written on each card.

Oh, and if anyone reading these posts has a different interpretation of what’s written, please feel free to post what you think they say in the comments section.

This is the seventh and final installment of the series.

…my mom sent KB and me a ransom letter!

Or, more accurately, a clue of the gift that awaits us back in Milwaukee when we come in for the holidays in December.

Start.

I didn’t know she was still making music, let alone monster movies.

Hmmm...

How did my mom guess my wrestling name?!?

This would be sweet, but I'm guessing it's not accurate.

Well, someone’s going to Hell. HINT: It’s probably me.

Is that a WWE reference?

I don’t know what this means, but something tells me it A) is definitely illegal, and B) somehow involves Chris Hanson from To Catch A Predator.

Oh, no.

Ah-HA! Got it!

Ah. Got it.

Officially excited for December,

-Shady

Old Poop!
