Bruce Currently makes his living as a juggler, physicist, and professional mutterer. When Bruce Larkin was 11 years old, he was struck by lighting while riding his unicycle.

His chances of holding her
Were the same as going to the moon.
There's no happy ending to the story
When a porcupine loves a balloon.
