Bucky's Scoop.

Bucky talks

You kids these days have it so cushy. When I first moved away from home, it was chew, chew, chew, build, build, build. What do you have to do? Roll out of bed, get dressed, a hot meal is waiting at Wally's. Okay, well there's the studying thing. Still, do you have any idea how many bites it takes to bring down an oak?
