You think the title of this show is long? Just you wait to see how we stretch our closing script. This is the first time ever, in VLO history, we actually let the entire audio track of our bumper music run all the way through, becuase it needed to run all the way through. Yikes.

Jason sampled the Montecristo Pilotico Pepe Mendez while Tony herfed the A. Flores 1975 Serie Privada Capa Habano SP52. Say that five times fast!
