This is a true story but names are hidden just because they are.

So Barkley virgin asks:

"This year will be my first attempt, any helpful training tips?"

And Barkley veteran answers:

"Ball-peen hammer to your testicles."

"Make sure you use both sides of the hammer and be sure to vary the speed, force and angle of the strikes."

"Good luck and most of all, have fun!"

My response is: hmm, that helps I suppose, well at least some, or most, of the idiots. Me personally, I'm still not sure what to do.
