Y'all like bodybuilders?

I like skinny, scrawny guys.

How 'bout multi-millionaires? How 'bout 8 inches and thick? How 'bout talented? How 'bout loving and respectful? I lost my wife 10 weeks ago, 21 years faithful. My daughter committed suicide 3 weeks ago, 13. She was faster than me at 12 and I run a 6-minute mile. My testimony, I'm nothing but pure, and I ask you if you wanna be on a YouTube channel, and you like scrawny guys.

I didn't know he'd trauma dump on us like that, damn!
