So there I was in a Peruvian taxi...

Cabbie:Hey you workout here in Peru?
Cabbie:Me too! You know where I could get some steroids?
Me:Uh, not exactly. What do you want steroids for?
Cabbie:So I can be big like Arnold Schwarzenegger
Me:Ambitious. And on that note, if you could just stop right here that'd be great...
