Reader: "I would rock some Poison if Teddy Ruxpin were singing it today"

Last week when we started talking about the first album that we bought with our own money, everybody had a story. Some were laudable (Ready to Die) and some were laughable (Savage Garden), but everybody had a story. And as we suspected, we weren't alone. When we asked you to share your stories, you offered up some good ones. Aubrie Allen posted one of the more amusing ones -- amusing to us mostly because we used Teddy Ruxpin for the same purpose, only swap Poison for Van Halen.
