You guys don't give Horkey a chance??? I know Griffin is awesome.... but I would give Aaron some props and say he is right up there. At least they are hand drawn, and not the same text all the time.

Good morning a- hole

As usually.......trying to stir up trouble.

Just for craps and giggles I took caligraphy as a kid.....

Want to battle ramrod? How about I letter a "Edger the a-hole" for you?

Get a life- or mods just ban this a-hole I could care less how many friends he has or tickets he gives to people

Folks that continualy harass should be banned - pretty simple

E: too much hate...

No love for Kelley on the lettering? He was second only to Griffin, IMHO...
