While Luke is highly competent at fooling, he certainly is no fool himself.

I just want to say that #2, #5, #9, and #11 (if possible) are all bestofs. At the very least - #9. AMAZING.

Maybe it's just me, but I thought that #3 was incredibly amusing. Ingenious? Perhaps not. But there's always something remarkably entertaining about delving into the creative genius of a dark, brooding 8-year-old.

I liked a lot about this night, but I wanted to say that I also really dug Marek's piece and I'll be thinking about it for Best Of when it comes around.
