Cheesebeast's real name is Leif? Merryfield?

Come on.

All kidding aside, good stuff. Keep it coming.

"Leif" was a rough name to grow up with. This time of year was the worst. The first day of school, and the usual chorus: "Leaf? Like on a tree? Bwhahahaha!" "What is your brother named, Shrub?" On and on. Then Fall came around, and a fresh crop of leaf jokes.

I was named after a viking, which is pretty cool. Unfortunately "leif" translates into "beloved" in Norse. Figures...

I thought you were going to say the kids asked you: "So, is your last name "Blower?"

I'll be here all week. Try the veal, it's exquisite tonight.

PS: I feel your pain. I can't tell you how many times I heard some variation of the "KenMore" washer/dryer joke. And every damn one of them thought they'd just thought it up.

That's nothing. Try "Creech" on for size sometime.

Almost forgot:

Nice review. I'll probably add this one to my library, if only to loan it to friends I can't convince that Motorcycling is Dangerous and a really Bad Idea.

Sven: How's it going Oly?

Oly: Hey Sven. I got a new snowmobile for my wife!

Sven: Hey Oly, that's a good trade if you can do it.

I wouldn't trade my name now. I have too much ridicule equity invested in it.

I would trade it for Spartacus, though. SPARTACUS! Table for six for SPARTACUS!

That would be wicked awesome.
