That's a lot of favorites brother Gregg.
I think your favorite 'dead guy' is one of my 'favorites'. I also like a good fish and chips but that's hard to find around here.

I like that you didn't narrow your favorite to one in each category. I match up pretty well with many of your favorites. Now that I think about it. Thanks for the post.
