[submitted by listener: Pariah Exile] Thank you!
Ya know those survey forms they have tucked into everything you buy now-a-days ? I hate those damn things. There was one of those survey cards sitting on the desk. One thing lead to another; this is the result, which ensures my place in Hell. This is ancient, but I am still fairly pleased with it.
