Just then, my man Brett announced that he was buying a round for everyone in the house who'd braved the deep freeze. Beautiful. At that, Biggie snapped out of his stupor long enough to belly up to the bar and say "I'll take one on the ass clown," motioning toward Michaels. The bartender laughed and handed the Big fella round number twelve. I had to pull the plug on the dude a few minutes later; on the road home, I got hit with some boogie shrapnel -- make that Biggie shrapnel -- of my own.
Looks like Brett got the last laugh.
