Dear GYA, I'd like to announce my triumphant return to stand-up comedy. You see, after a three-day retirement that included a police chase while riding on an ATV, slapping a Target employee and threatening some guy with a pool cue, I feel completely reinvigorated and ready to get back to work. Anything happening this weekend to celebrate? - Katt Williams
