THE BEST PART OF THE BIG MAHOFF IS …
… that it’s not for everybody.
My writing and humor walk the line of funny as hell and fairly offensive. It’s kind of like my mom after her first can of sauvignon blanc, but with less slurring and no spilling.
Thanks for reading this blurb. Contact Frank Freudberg now to get your hands on The Big Mahoff. You’ll be glad you did.
