A frog has to use logs to get across a stream, because he can’t swim.
You’re a bus driver. You drive buses. And that huge lump of speeding metallic death that you’re in control of? You’re not allowed to speed with it, or inflict death. Because you’re a real bus driver, not one of those silly videogame ones. ROCK AND ROLL!
In a series of events in no way related to a pound and a half of cocaine, Tim has lost Binford’s new tools but minutes before the start of a show. Whatever to do?! Well being a REAL MAN (ugh ugh ugh, etc.), Tim sets forth around the lot surrounding the Tool Time set to find them.
Not too dangerous a task for a REAL MAN (ugh ugh ugh, etc.), you might ponder. Not so.
