Nothing's Shocking

Everybody makes mistakes and everybody does something really stupid once in a while. Me? I'm always screwing up and have a penchance for doing some pretty stupid stuff...alot. When this happens I've learned to just accept that I'm not perfect, pick myself up off the ground and keep moving. It helps to be able to laugh at yourself, which after thirty-five years I've become pretty good at. In fact it's like I'm my own personal laugh track.

Whenever I discover I've made some kind of horrible mistake or I've once again become the victim of my own bad decision-making skills, there is someone I look to for inspiration. This person showed me that even though you screw something up so bad that it's almost irrepairable, you've still got to get off your knees, pick up your purple stormtrooper helmet, and ask the world, "Do you want a piece of me?"

If the picture doesn't say enough, here's a link so that you can view the ill-fated debut of The Shockmaster. It's pretty long, but it's worth it. I'm not a huge wrestling fan, but I know straight-up comedy when I see it. And don't forget there's that whole "inspiring" thing too.
