Blank and Bush 2-3-14 Total Loss Of Control

February 4th, 2014

We clearly lose control of this one. We started with no guest. So we made Ross our guest. Then Bush was late, and the employees of the Chicken Coop, a local restaurant show up and all hell breaks loose. Bush and Ross decide to bring on a girl named Miranda, and some guy named Matt talks off mic the rest of the show. We don't even know what we talk about nor could we understand each other! But it was fun for sure!!!!
