The one about 40 years from now, ladies in tattoos, rap will be oldies. That's hysterically funny. I actually saw a really, really old person a few months ago, covered in tattoos. I mean, she had to have been 75 years old maybe....anyway, I was like, "Jeez, when did you get all those? Didn't know they had ink way back when."

Thanks for this, it was really funny.
