            Bert, I find the selection of your guest exeptionally brave at times. Guest like this will maybe not look good on the numbers. But I enjoy it very much to get to know people and concepts I would otherwise never have came across. Thank you.

              I own 9 pairs of Freewaters flip flops... love them! Luckly, I live in Scottsdale where i can wear them 360 days a year.

                                  I would buy a pair, if every viewer does that's 28k right now

                                    Bert's stories of drinking blood with african tribes and fighting bears makes me think of him as some kind of modern day jungle cruise-esque explorer.

                                      Browsing the website now. I'm contemplating which pair to buy... the "Tall Boy" pair seem almost too good to be true but the reviews are good, and Bert is giving his seal of approval? Well, I'm sold! If there is anything I trust Bert with, it's flip flops! And booze-- flip flops and booze.

                                      It won't be long and I'll be sipping on some Tito's in my new pair of Freewaters. Thanks for the recommendations, Bert! I've never been able to find a pair that I really enjoy and I've got high hopes. *fingers crossed*

                                                Burt really needs to learn to shut the fuck up when other people are talking......he's the quintessential "one upper".
