Belated Christmas 2013


Groucho and CHUD sit down on Christmas night 2013 to hammer out one last show of the year.  But, being your typical brothers who hang out in the basement, we didnt get this Christmas card out till after the new year.  Its the thought that counts right?

The show is a little long, but we were not dragging bottom anywhere.  Lots of topics and some interesting beer.

Merry Christmas!  (Or whatever pagan ritual based religious event you celebrate at the solstice!)
