Naked Man Moleskin:

* Because a non-excited hillbilly is just…. not exciting.
** Who knew hill back peddles could burn so bad?!? PAX hit a new record for most mid-wife noises on this one. Burn, burn, buuuurrrrrrrn!!!
*** With an extra slow “1-2-3” on 18 and 19 just to let the PAX think we’d end on 20.
