Well, I ain’t looking for no
show down. I’m tired! I’m beat! All
I want is to go home to my shitty
house in Joplin...
The Sheriff maintains a tight grip on his pistol.
And when I get to my cold and
empty house, I’m going to walk
straight to the kitchen and open the
fridge and grab me a cold one.
I’m gonna pop open a few Paps
Blue Ribbons that are waiting for
me. Then I’m gonna collapse right
down into my lazy boy... Did you
know I’ve had that damn lazy boy
since the nintey’s?? Well, it’s

People shouldn't be awake when they
day dream. It causes problems. They
should be asleep when they

POW!!! Flenders punches Jack so hard he knocks him backward over
