  1. Hi Ren. Mr. Monell’s slash line is pretty shitty, obviously better than anything I can do, but still pretty shitty. And a billion Won is pretty darn good for a 1 year contract. Just the other day I was mentioning to Mrs. Punch, that if I could just bend over to tie my cleats, I too would be making a billion Won.

    900,000 US ain’t to bad either.
