Why Do We Give Guns To Monkeys

Back in college,i was secretary of football team,That was my only claim to glory because the skills on the pit were less had admirable,sure i was first,thats why i prayed right back,but that was about it.After games we would gather at club 55 to drink,the foot ball team was not as popular t the girls as the rugby and basketballs teams,so we had few groupies,but that was okay,because in the absence of girls boys were prone to be themselves,when we were relatively sober we would discuss the game,who played like an idiot and who deserved to be kicked out of the team.
