Are you going to use me for bait???? I can't swim...remember...and those gators sure look hungry or maybe need a toothpick like me...oh my...I'm starting to sweat a little bit...

Are we taking the kayak??????? Jenny I'm already nerveous about going to the everglades let alone being in a little boat!!! Maybe I'll just watch from shore.

Don't worry! If they swim too near, I'll jump out and wrassle 'em. I've been lifting weights, you know. Just imagine they are scaly Fyodors, full of love!

I don't Matt.....too risky for me, I don't do too good in river you know!!

Cool fact! A while back there was a guy that ate metal stuff everyday. Over a period of time he ate like 8 bikes, a small airplane, a bunch of nails..etc. Pretty cool.

And also there is a man who has eaten a mcdonalds big mac everyday for like 30 years...he lives in Waupun WI and is a prison guard! That almost makes me famous!

i think i might've seen that guy on letterman!!! he was doing a stupid human trick, and he chewed up light bulbs and everything!!! my uncle glen once ate a fuel filter dipped in grease - someone bet him, but they didn't even bet him any money! it was just one of those "bet you won't do it" things. he upped the ante with the grease. :-)

that big mac guy should do ads for mcdonalds like jared does for subway!!! have you ever met your waupun celebrity?

Mr. Goodman,

Be sure the gator wrestlin' doesn't aggravate your micro-tears.

Aaron said...

I did some research and it turns out the big mac guy is from fond du lac...which is 15 minutes from waupun. He set a world record for eating 18,000 big macs over a 30 year period! He keeps big macs in his freezer in case mcdonalds closes due to weather conditions.

The Goodfellas said...

a frozen-and-thawed big mac sounds sooooo gross!!! is he obsessive compulsive or something, and needs to do things the same every day? or is he just a very dedicated fan??

The Goodfellas said...

OOH a good question!!!!!!!! if you had to choose 1 thing to eat every day for the next 30 years, what would it be?????

Aaron said...

I guess he just really loves big macs...a lot. I could eat a blooming onion from outback every day for 30 years without thinking twice.

The Goodfellas said...

a blooming onion? are those deep-fried, and they come with sauces to dip in? kinda like a giant thing of onion rings?

Aaron said...

it's the greatest onion ring-thing ever. deep-fried with the best spices imaginable and comes with horseradish like sauce....wow. it has no equal.
