Hey, friend, whaddaya hear, whaddaya know?
So let me ask you something. Yeah, you, c’mere once. So what brings you to this little hole in the wall? It’s not exactly high-class and I’d think someone like you would be up on the East Side and not in the Briefcase. Aw, shut the fock up Nelson you know it’s more true than I do. Fock’s sake.
You came looking for me, didn’t you? Yeah, I know that, I know ol’ Reggie’s been here on the Sout’ side since before it turned all Latin, ain’a the truth? Fock’s sake, Kossie park’s about as old as I am, make no mistake. Back when Hoan ran the show this city had some fockin’ self respect, don’t it kill you? Bless his heart.
But yeah, I seen a lot in these years. So we gonna go through all the motions, huh, kid? You wanna hear about the Woman with the Crimson Smile? No, how about the Zombie Boy? You already fockin’ read about the Zombie Boy on the fockin’ computer? Fock you, I know you haven’t, don’t fockin’ feed me that. Ah, Christ living, sorry about that. You gonna buy a drink or just stand there fidgeting with that little key of yours?
Take it from Reg, pal. Have a beer. It doesn’t shut them up. They never shut up.
But it takes the edge off, aina?
