          1. I must admit that Danny is the brains of the outfit. And everyone loves him. So I just go along. By the way, Danny has commanded me (he does that a lot) to offer our services on occasion. We would love to write a piece now and then for your wonderful blog. But I must insist that by name comes first in the billing. And a larger font than Danny’s wouldn’t be so bad either.

            Oh, here he comes. I gotta go!

          2. If anyone is girly it’s me. No wait, that’s not right. What I meant to say is that I like girls and Danny adores females. And seeing as how we’re both of Irish extraction, we should be able to come up with something for you. Will tomorrow be soon enough? Just kidding. I just finished my latest masterpiece and I’m waiting for my sloth-like editors to get a draft back to me. So, seeing as how we have no TV and cannot keep up with the Kardashians, we’ll be able to knock something out for you. That is if Danny and I can agree on a subject. Thanks for inviting us.

          3. You’ll probably have to pour me into a seat to regale your guests with my pithy anecdotes. It will be Saint Paddy’s Day afterall. Please have plenty of beer on hand. Guinness, of course. See ya then!!! This is Andrew I’m using Danny’s account because for some reasons the gods will not allow me to post as myself. Speak of karma!!!
