                                              Hi. This may be because i'm drunk but I want to tell you that your comment is not only original but also inspiring. I would never have thought that this video was funny and you were right, I am a man. But the best part is that you took the time to put a full sto at the end of your comment because you care. Thank you. You make me feel like i don't really need the booze
