    – one guy was trying to melt them down and drink them. disqualified.
    – one guy swallowed a stick and was ambulanced.
    – one guy saw that he was losing and, bad sport, stuck a single cherry sicle up his butt.

You guys are real talents and great guys and deserve it!

    “Hello. I don’t believe I’ve had the Pleasure?”

    “Oh Wow! Your accent is rilly rilly awesome. You sound like one of those Beatles or like from Montie Pie-thon! Oh My Gawd, That is so cute!”

    Thank You Jefferson, Hancock and all. No Tax without Representation!
