Asterios Kokkinos gave me Bed Bugs, listen to his Podcast.
I one time bought a recliner from Asterios when he moved from LA to New York, soon after I got Bed Bugs.
Are these two things connected? Maybe.
Do I still have Bed Bugs? Yes.
Best Podcast in the Universe
There is no debate that this podcast is great. In spite of it being relatively new, the Comediens bring tons of experience. The biggest problem of this podcast is that it only lasts about 45 minutes. You'd have to be cuckoo NOT to enjoy every minute of it. The host is as funny as an Armenian is harry, and By George! is he funny! I'd bet my personal and private reputation that you'll also enjoy it, and I will never disavow that statement. Dick, gfy.
Sneaky Greek sneaks into our hearts and fills it with laughter. This podcast is thankfully better than he smells, which is bad. And this podcast is good.
Listen to it now.
