the 'baadshah of bollywood" Shah Rukh Khan may have made history with over 9 million twatters follow'n him on twitter today...but in '82...someone made history with over 9 million benjamins from an armored truck in the BIG APPLE 
Siri may be yer best friend when gett'n ya outta a sticky situation these days...but she wouldn't be here if it wasn't fer her grand papi K.I.T back in '82
though this performer delusionally narcissistic merlot love'n florist...die'n fer a permanent spot on Dr. Phil and poster child fer ENEMA'S-R-US...has cornered the market on alienate'n those around her these days...this alien owned the movie market with millions of fans fall'n in love with them without have'n to barely say a word in '82

on top of ALL that BOY has accomplished in his career...he still has time...
to do what he loves doin since it all began as one of the world's most sought after DJ's

but finally after over 30 long years entertain'n the masses on their asses...
