FUZZY NEWS– The Short Story

The Scores are in– I came in lowest with a roll of a 5, Katrina rated an 8, Ben a 9, Jude a 10, and Emily a double-sixes 12!!! Rich B was super amazing host, DJ Buddhafunk fabulous, and Dice-maker and accordian player Kris Mills made some wild-ass heavy bellows acordion breathing at the mic following Rich’s Oscar Grouch Erotica.
