I resent the reckless use of a perfectly good name. Posted by Bob at April 18, 2003 12:17 PM

This must be undersplained to those of us out of the loop. (The picture has something to do with Dallas? Outkast?) Posted by Joe at April 18, 2003 12:40 PM

Bob "J.R." Dobbs works in mysterious ways. See Also: Outkast's B.O.B.
