Review: Flipper at Lion's Lair, 3/29/12


FLIPPER @ LION'S LAIR | 3/29/12

"How do you get a hippie girl pregant?" asked Rachel Thoele before Flipper even played a note. "Cum on her Birkenstocks, and let the flies do the rest." Bruce Loose had a chuckle and asked her if she had any more jokes. She did. "What do nine out of ten people enjoy?" No one seemed to have an answer. "Gang rape." Then Loose joked, "Sometimes that's ten out of ten." As Loose later remarked, "This is typical Flipper."
