I thought it was hilarious. Especially given the mind-set of the early courses: totally open / gullable, fully true-belieiving, rumor-mongering. The boy has wit. And I'm still chuckling over "MMY hasn't called any one that in years." Its a style of humor prevalent in SIMS days,IMO. Lost or diminished in time. High-pranks, MFs, kindly, eye-twinkling irreverance, no sacred cows. Jerry was quite the jokester. And loved telling witty things he picked up "on-the-road."
