  • Yeah.
  • You have how many now?
  • We've got four now and one on the way.
  • Wow.
  • So we got two boys, two girls.
  • It's a tie breaker coming.
  • And you don't know what it is yet?
  • No.
  • Not yet.
  • All right.
  • Four grandkids.
  • Yeah.
  • Four grandkids.
  • My wife Marjorie is all in.
  • She's all in.
  • This Nana Papa thing is big for her.
  • She's Nana.
  • Right.
  • I figured that.
  • Cool name.
  • Yeah.
  • It'd be weird for her to be Papa and you be Nana.
  • Yeah.
  • I don't want to be Papa, though.
  • What do you want to be?
  • I want to be called Big Pimpin'.
  • Is it too late?
  • How old are they?
  • Well, I can't.
  • She told me my granddaughters can't call me Big Pimpin'.
  • No?
  • No.
  • But she's all-- let me tell you crazy my wife is.
  • Oh, these two right here--
  • she's into everything.
  • Halloween at our house-- you know, I just
  • thought Halloween was just candy.
  • It's just getting kids candy.
  • That's all we had.
  • Just candy.
  • She throws a thing in the backyard, a carnival.
  • We have cotton candy machines, making the apples machines,
  • we got a petting zoo, and a teepee.
  • A 16 foot high teepee.
  • Wow.
  • And so, you know, the kids are loving it.
  • So the next day is Wednesday because Halloween
  • was on a Tuesday, so the next day is Wednesday.
  • So I'm off on Wednesdays.
  • I'm out at the pool smoking a cigar.
  • I'm having a good time.
  • All of a sudden, the four grandkids
  • are on the other side of the house just screaming.
  • [SCREAMING]
  • They're taking the teepee.
  • They're taking the teepee.
  • The man had come over to remove the teepee and the petting zoo.
  • These kids' mouths were so wide like Charlie Brown.
  • You can see their little dang-a-long in the back
  • of their--
  • [SCREAMING]
  • And so I go over there and I'm panicking 'cause Papa
  • they're taking the teepee.
  • So I said, hold, hold.
  • I said, sir, sir.
  • Stop taking the teepee down in front of the kids.
  • Look at these kids.
  • Sir, I have to remove the teepee.
  • It's my job.
  • I don't give a damn what your job is.
  • You see these kids tripping.
  • Take the teepee down.
  • Just go do something else and leave a teepee alone.
  • So he said, OK sir.
  • So I got him calmed down.
  • I go back to my cigar in the pool.
  • Hour and a half later, they're taking the teepee.
  • So I panic.
  • I throw the cigar in the pool, which is not a good idea
  • 'cause it don't look like a cigar when it's in the pool.
  • It's in there doing some other stuff.
  • And I go around there and they just,
  • they're taking the teepee.
  • I said, sir, sir, you got to stop taking this teepee down
  • in front of these kids.
  • Sir, I'm done.
  • I have to go.
  • I said, OK.
  • Man, well how much is the teepee?
  • The due said the TP is $8,500.
  • I said what kind of damn teepee--
  • so Papa, they're taking the teepee.
  • Shut up for a minute and let me talk.
  • They're taking the teepee.
  • So I bought the teepee.
  • [LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]
  • The teepee is in our yard.
  • I had them move it over.
  • Oh, you got a picture of it.
  • It's 16 feet high, folks.
  • So it's in the backyard.
  • So recently, little Rose comes over.
  • She can talk pretty good and like she's a little--
  • she's a girl, so she's a little--
  • she tells everything.
  • And I was trying to get her not to and she'd comes back in.
  • Nana, our teepee smells like Papa's cigars.
  • [INAUDIBLE] I can't believe she's telling this.
  • And so my wife goes, Steve, why does the teepee smell
  • like cigars?
  • I say, 'cause it's $8,500 and when they're not here,
  • it's not a teepee, it's a cigar lounge.
  • I see.
  • Yeah.
  • That's fair.
  • It's a nice place.
  • It's fair.
  • Smoke goes straight up.
  • It's really nice.
  • I bet it's nice in there.
  • Yeah.
  • It's nice.
  • I bet it's real nice and smoky in there
  • when you're by yourself.
  • It's so nice.
