The Outtakes

Creating the original video was great the outtakes were a lot of fun. I don't mind laughing at myself (and other people too, obviously). This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, businesses, places, events and incidents are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.



Don't take life too seriously. If you do, this blog probably isn't for you.
