He Hate Me

The XFL never did get its sea legs, and I might be fine with the fact if it weren’t for Rod Smart’s jersey name, the best I will ever hear.

I have no idea why I just remembered that.

I think it was because recently a friend was explaining, once again, how one played Edward Fortyhands (you duct-tape a forty to each hand and can’t remove them until you’ve finished them both, I half-pray this is just urban legend but I think he's actually completed--and possibly won--this game more than once, this from a highly respectable guy about to get married to a highly respectable girl this summer) and I remembered that and somehow made the connection.

Cause obviously, if there’s anything that goes with Edward Fortyhands, it’s the XFL.



Classy.

definitely not urban legend...i've participated in a round of edward fortyhands (sadly not the victor, though really everyone wins when you play E40H).

i always figured it was a country boredom thing, but maybe not...

Don't forget everyone's favorite porn star, "Edward Penishands".

Not only have I done it, but I did it at the annual celebration of the '40th of July'-- the best tradition ever. Followed closely by the "St. Ides of March" and the conceived but never enacted "Colt 45 Shopping Days Left 'Til Christmas."

Wow--those games sound hilarious and full of vomit.

You have to post the rules here so we can try them.

i'm only reiterating the above statements but it is in no way an urban legend. There is a certain Bukowski character you know named Marty with whom I have played this awful game many times. The most hilarious part is trying to tape the last dudes hands when everyone else is bound by malt liquor.
side note, i drank this evening at a topless/botomless (wherein you either were topless or bottomless) with some chick who evidently was on America's Next Top Model. She was a redhead (might be a dye job, probably) and I guess cheated on her boyfriend on the show??? Anyway's she wore electrical tape on her nipples. love, me

p.s. i also just did a video with Kool Keith.

Ok, tell me why I thought you were talkin' about money, instead of alcohol. I was just about to say, there's no such thing as a $40 bill. Ugh. God, I need a drink...maybe I'll go play E40H...

Hint: while it may be tempting to take advantage of the corner liquor store's mix and match sale, edward 40-handsing a red dog in one hand and Old E' in the other does is not recommended. Also, you got to get the first few ounces down fast cause it makes your hands cold. and it's hard to pee when you got your hands strapped. i think i peed and puked on myself last time..
