4. Wow, "caca" Allen is turning out to be even nuttier than I thought--
I've always wondered about people who try to create a whole new identity--Allen's Confederate fixation while growing up in California, now seemingly running from part of his heritage. And the audience boo'd; what were they booing? The fact their boy might be part Jewish? Nifty base you got there, Felix.
