OK, I can laugh at a driver I like when its not presented in a malicious way.

I’ve read better Kurt jokes, but I’ve read worse ones too. Thank’s for leaving the ears out of it. The ear jokes were only funny the first 5000 times.

#6 is the best. Spencer is the best friend Kurt ever had. And I’m pretty fond of the dear, old, “never was” too. :-)

Funny, while Kurt does not have a very good image (who really cares?), he can drive the wheels off of a race car.
