    " a hungover nurse on blood drive day..." Sadly, I know exactly who he is referring to. Eight holes later, she finally got the blood she wanted. Thank God that was over 20 years ago...

    @zefrank1 I gotta tell you. I've watched you a long time and the laughs I get are innumerable. I have a buddy that is very depressed and I told him that online you can always find something to make you laugh when you're down and bummed. I showed him your channel and got MUCH thanks. I can only pass the thanks to you. You're a funny funny man.

    Your work is a genuine continuation of the style of humor made popular by Monty Python, Michael O'donoghue, Buck Henry et al. You're so good at it that, IMHO you should never let anyone persuade you to change it. You've nailed it! Please keep it up!

    I am a high school biology teacher and I must say this is awesome. Not only do I l love thorn bugs but the narration is so unexpected and silly while also informative that is borders on being...dare i say...classic. Well done.
