Funny to read, but more hints as to who the poopetrator was would be useful. And the illustration is great (but I thought she was driving and he was yelling from the passenger seat?).
commented on Renting a PA vs Owning a PA - For DJing Only
I bought a set of JBL powered speakers, got em used but in amazing shape, for relatively cheap. I prefer playing gigs where someone else has sound duties, or clubs where I know they've got their own sound (although I bring a variety of cables -- XLR, 1/4" and RCA -- and up to 25 feet just to make sure). Having my own speakers means getting some gigs that others might not, and I tack on a $50 or so (depending on gig, who it's for, etc.) fee so it's cheaper than them renting and the speakers pay for themselves in due time. Look around, used JBLs come up pretty frequently, and if they're in good shape they're bulletproof. I've had mine for 4 years or so.

The Smugglers, "Seattle Bound"
Green River's "Come on Down" is about the Green River.
@9 nicely done Brian, but Curt B. would remind you there is no second "e" in Wedgwood!

@10 I get that too, but it's an easy whine to deflect: if you needed a 4.0 in my class, you should have worked harder and earned it; others did. And the response they don't get but I think: if you didn't get a 4.0 in this class that you thought you needed to get into University X's law/med/grad program, then you likely wouldn't do well there either.
