massive books on your lap

Yesterday I spent four hours sitting inside a tattoo shop while my girlfriend got a tatoo of a schooner on her ribcage (she is hot and has a bunch of tattoos). While there, I came across this book which weighs 85 pounds
I wouldn't recommend buying it, because it seems like it would cost a ton of money. But although it must be a bitch to steal, I do recommend getting a hold of it somehow and flipping through the 500 two foot tall pages of historical circus shots and acts. quite a delight.

Complete Dick

At the end of the tax year, the IRS office sent an inspector to audit

the books of a local hospital. While the IRS agent was checking the

books he turned to the CFO of the hospital and said, "I notice you buy a

lot of bandages.What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too

little left to be of any use? "Good question," noted the CFO. "We save

them up and send them back to the bandage company and every now and then

they send us a free box of bandages. "Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat

disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he

went, in his obnoxious way. "What about all these plaster purchases?

What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?

"Ah, yes," replied the CFO, realizing that the inspector was trying to

trap him with an unanswerable question. "We save it and send it back to

the manufacturer, and every now and then they send us a free package of

plaster. "I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could

fluster the know-it-all CFO. "Well," he went on, "What

do you do with all the leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you

perform? "Here, too, we do not waste," answered the CFO. "What we do is

save all the little foreskins and send them to the IRS Office, and about

once a year they send us a complete dick."

This year we saw something new as far as best trick contest go. Mixing it up in between the double set and water gap was the Barrel Jump. This was definitely a fun one to watch. Its pretty simple, go fast and jump as many as you can and try and hold on for dear life.
