It's Funny 'Cause It's True!

I used to manage a comic shop in Mobile, Alabama and some of them would come in and I would have to hold my breath. We had one guy in particular that would come in at least once a week. Real Alan Moore type with the beard and the hair and "Buddy Holly" glasses at least three inches thick. The guy reeked like hot garbage... in a sewer... full of dead animals. He always wore the same gray t-shirt which I'm sure was white at one time, and told me a story of how all of his D&D player guidebooks got ruined from water damage. "Did you have a flood?" I asked him. "Nope, I had a leaky shower head."

That's right folks - HE KEPT HIS BOOKS IN HIS BATHTUB!!!! Now, everything made perfect sense. Man, I could do a ten-year long sitcom called "Comic Shop" based solely upon my true experiences.
