BY MICHAEL GENGE
@ VOL 36 ON DEC 01, 2015

“I went to this summer camp in this area of southern Illinois… I signed up for two weeks. Everyone else seemed to sign up for one week so there was one point for like a week long I was there I was alone with all the counselors I started singing the canoe song… and they were like ‘oh my god, he's a buffet head! We're going to take him out for burgers and beer’.”
