Edwin R. Perry (MKE)- a two pump chump – & Chelsea Tadeyeske (MKE)- a two lump dump – present “suddenly you’re naked…” and “factual information” between their own drippings.

Rachel Finkelstein (CHI)- is a li’l bitch. She’s had work published in Prick of the Spindle and Shampoo Magazine, and is kidding about the bitch part. She’s actually pretty charming, IRL, (CHI) city.
