"Relax, Sweetheart. I'm Not Gonna Bite You... Yet."

Years ago, my friend Patrick had a boyfriend who would open up his puppy dog eyes, pout his lips and say to Patrick, no matter where they were...

"Buy me a present."

He didn't really mean it. It was just a running joke. Funniest when he said it in 7-Eleven...

"Buy me a present."

My buddy Scot just emailed me to tell me that a man who bought a copy of Action Comics #1 in 1950 for fifty cents has just put this rare comic up for bid.

Action Comics #1 is the first appearance of Superman. It was originally sold in 1938 for 10 cents. Copies of Action Comics #1 in "fine" condition are worth around $126,000. This one could sell for several times that.

So, y'all...
"Buy me a present."

I saw we start an oline giving campaign "Buy Stephen Rader a Present", with a thermometer and all. the only caveat is if you do get it, you have to read it to us as a vlog, in the buff, of course
