Kentucky clowns can really take a punch. My uncle Pete or Buck as they call him was raised in the syrup flavoring counties in the territory where it was first invented by Mister Jacob P.R.

Charles Bukowski
“They have no idea that it can be done by a bus driver, a field hand, or a fry cook. They have no idea where it comes from. It comes from pain, damnation and impossibility. The blow to the soul of the gut. It comes from getting burned and seared and slugged. It comes from...new and awful places and the same old places.”
