Meat Treat — A Lunchtime Odyssey

I’ve actually had a job wearing big mascot-like costumes. For a brief period in 1988, I was employed as a singing telegram man, singing birthday greetings, anniversary congratulations and nuptial announcements in a number of places around town. I was able to play guitar and sing, so most of the time, I was given the top hat and tails costume, which yields just a small amount of psychic residue. However, the gorilla suit… (Well, just look around my website, and you’ll see it caused a certain amount of damage.)

Alltop is pretty sure this video is messing with its chi.
