Of course, when you are a news caster, your one job is to accurately report facts! Now, if you had one chance to be on the news, even if it was for something as embarrassing as wrecking your boat, you might want people to think you are little more well off than you are, and might brag a little about what your boat cost.

And that should put it in the ballpark of about twenty or so tons, wouldn’t it?
Well, it could be worse. he could be THIS GUY!!
