When it is raining, it is because he is sad.

Even his parents' advice is insightful.

If there were an interesting gland, his would be larger than most men's entire lower intestines.

His shirts never wrinkle.

He is left-handed. And right-handed.

Even if he forgets to put postage on his mail, it gets there.

He once knew a call was a wrong number, even though the person on the other end wouldn't admit it.

You can see his charisma from space.

The police often question him, just because they find him interesting.

He once punched a magician. That's right. You heard me.

When he orders a salad, he gets the dressing right there on top of the salad, where it belongs...where there is no turning back.

If a monument was built in his honor, Mt. Rushmore would close, due to poor attendance."

He is Leigh Torrence, the most interesting man in the world.

I don't know if you guys read Science or Nature, but this revolutionary paper was published simultaneously in both Journals:

"Cure for Cancer, HIV, Halitosis and Colicky Babies: A Myriad of Uses for the Blood of Leigh Torrence"

From the aricle: "Regardless of whole blood or separated blood products, the blood of Leigh Torrence, NFL superstar and angelic humanitarian, has demonstrated remarkable recuperative powers. Intense efforts towards the wholesale isolation and manufacture of these products are under way, as we anticipate using Leigh's blood to be able to cure the common cold, impetigo, depression and erectile dysfunction in the near future, in addition to aforementioned medical breakthroughs."

This recently divorced woman met Leigh Torrence in a bar, and of course she was immediately attracted to him. Over a few drinks, she related the story of a recent break-up which had her down in the dumps. “You see,” she said, brought to a level of candor that only Leigh Torrence can elicit from a woman, “I like to get kinky, I mean really kinky. He didn’t and that’s why we split up.” Leigh Torrence assured the woman that, among his many other interests and talents, he also likes to get kinky, really kinky. Naturally, the woman invited Leigh back to her place. She told him to wait while she made her preparations in the bedroom. A few minutes later she came out, dressed in a black leather, studded S&M outfit, whip in one hand, eggbeater in the other. She was shocked to see Leigh Torrence by the door, putting on his coat and getting ready to leave. “I thought we were going to get kinky?” she entreated. “I did get kinky,” Leigh Torrence said. “I just SJKed your cat and took a SJK in your purse. Now I’m going home.”

RI insiders... I don't know how to say this but all this Leigh Torrence talk has to stop.

Leigh Torrence is actually a deeply undercover double agent for both the FBI and CIA. Real name is Barry Hussien Torrence. Coming out of highschool he was one of the most sought after prospective spys in history..all the intelegence agency vigorously recruited him.. and his football prowless provided perfect cover. He left D.C. once his name began to circulate among the best players in the NFL... he is trying to lay low so his identity isn't comprimised and he can persue his next mission of saving the planet.

Don't you all respect national security !?!?!?

PS: He also bakes a hell of a cake and has never been beaten in scrabble.
