    It's another annual PRE-SUPER BOWL PARTY! We've got a sweet lineup for you: Pre-Super Bowl Party virgins The Jelly Project, Pre-Super Bowl Party veterans RapeDoor, and the perpetrators of prodigious previous Pre-Super Bowl parties, Primadonahue and Well Trained Monkey. It's free, it's big ridiculous over the top fun just like the Super Bowl itself, and we're going to bring it to you at Wild Tymes, Saturday February 1st. Be there, and we'll bring down the house, just like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAyLX2hY7E0

Q: DOES THE WELLEST TRAINED MONKEY EVER CATCH HER BREADTH AFTER LISTENING TO THE LINE UP?
A: Thanks for your question, it about cracked my coconut. Regarding the first part, by your use of the pronoun "her" you seem to be inferring that the wellest trained monkey is not me, because then it would be "his." Hm. As for the second part, I never catch my breath because I never lose it. As for breadth, I try to eat gluten free but I like a nice caraway rye.
