Hillbilly Zen – The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get

I asked for help with a tagline, and got more than I expected from mlewisredford.  In addition to some excellent advice, he included this in his reply, which in turn sparked a couple of brain cells that survived my misspent youth.  Crank up your speakers and rock out.

    I think we had the same misspent youth! And MLR reminds me of a great New Yorker cartoon. A man tells his dog to play dead. The next frame shows the dog with a guitar, “riding that train, high on cocaine. . .”
