the loaded question-er
FIRSTS IN LAST
Hey, it’s been awhile. What y’all been up to?
Me? No good, but NO body got hurt ... at least that I’m aware of.
Let’s see, where are we right now? Ah yes, the mothergrabbin’ World Finals … the last of its kind. What do I mean by that … it’s the last NHRA Winston/ (maybe) POWERade finals in history … unless the lawyers torpedo the sale. Yep, the National Hartenstein (or maybe Direct TV) Racing Association World Finals will be what it is from now on, and that loud vomiting you think you hear is real. That’s Wally, Buster, Barbara, Jack Hart, Dismuke, and the founders muddying the sky blue waters in the pool at the Pearly Gates Hotel.
Enough of this blather, Quiz time, ladies and germs and the subject will be lasts. What does that mean? See below ….
