Some Beers with Dan & Chris: Chris & Dan Find Jesus

Jesus works the ticket booth down at the lion races. He’s a nice guy. Once, when I was a few bucks short, he let me in. Wouldn’t even let me give him the money I had. He figured what good is going to the lion races if you can’t have a beer? None. A lion race without a beer is worse than no lion races at all.

He got into grad school later and ended up in Boston for a while.


Some Beers with Chris & Dan: Dan & Chris’ Lunar Adventurers!

The Moon is a mean place. It’s full of nothing but vacuum and dust like ground glass. Nothing can live their without a space suit, aside from the Moon Worms: fourteen foot long, marginally intelligent, eyeless, sexually aggressive, greasy, gray tubes. Horrible creatures.

They taste fantastic.
