My job is so farking unbelievable. I'll try to sum it up by first telling you about the folks I work with:

First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and has never once considered the needs or wants of anyone but herself. She is as dumb as a box of rocks, and I still find it surprising that she has enough brain power to continue to breathe.

The next chick is completely the opposite. She might even be one of the smartest people on the planet. Her career opportunities are endless, and yet she is here with us. She is a zero on a scale of 1 to 10. I'm not sure she even showers, much less shaves her "womanly" parts. I think she might be a lesbian, because every time we drive by the hardware store, she moans like a cat in heat.

But the jewel of the crowd has got to be the farking stoner. And this guy is more than just your average pothead. In fact, he is baked before he comes to work, during work, and I'm sure after work. He probably hasn't been sober anytime in the last ten years, and he's only 22. He dresses like a beatnik throwback from the 1960's, and to make things worse, he brings his big farking dog to work. Every farking day I have to look at this huge Great Dane walk around half-stoned from the second-hand smoke. Hell, sometimes I even think it's trying to talk with its constant bellowing. Also, both of them are constantly hungry, requiring multiple stops to McDonalds and Burger King, every single farking day.

Anyway, I drive these farktards around in my van and we solve mysteries and shiat.

If he does win, he plans to share his prize with some of the people who helped him along the way. In particular, he wants to help the Victory Assembly of God food bank in Brunswick, Ga., which supplied him with food and gas when he ran out of money after he had to stop at a hospital because of a severe sunburn.

for all the anti-religious farkers...

Chris Farley did a "van down by the river" sketch. It was funny, you should check it out.

If on the event horizon of the black hole down by the river, you'd need headlights pointing out the front and back of the van and a third eye in the back of your head.

One evening as the sun went down and the jungle fires were burning
Down the track came a hobo hiking
and he said "boys I'm not turning"
I'm headed for a land that's far away
beyond the crystal fountain
so come with me lets go and see
the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Or the one where Disney makes a version of "Of Mice And Men", but the focus groups feel that George is too mean, so they make it with two Lennies..."Wanna pet another puppy, Lenny?"
