**A Cartoonish Life
Never really one
for popularity contests
popularity found me.
The first time I had sex
I was an amateur at best.
the first re-telling to my friends
I was Ron Jeremy in 1975.
Sometimes I wonder
if i build myself up
or myself builds me.
One thing is for certain:
Over inflated ego's tend to burst all at once,
and Snuffaluffagus was always cooler than
As a child I related to him,
along with Daffey Duck,
Now you tell me who has an ego.
