With three smokers now in the trunk, the air was getting thick.
I'm outta here." said Ash. "I gotta finish my report on that burning retail establishment."
Billy Gibbons excused himself, as well, muttering something about "crazy ass forum people" and wandered down the shoulder with his thumb out. Of course, it wasn't long before a '34 Ford coupe full of hot, young chicks scooped up the grizzled crooner and departed in a cloud of burning rubber.
