Nick Yurick's Facebook profile

Way out west there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Nicholas Yurick. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. See, this Yurick, he called himself "The Nick". Now, "Nick" - there's a name no man would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about The Nick that didn't make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again, maybe that's why I found the place so darned interestin'. See, they call Los Angeles the "City Of Angels"; but I didn't find it to be that, exactly. But I'll allow it as there are some nice folks there. 'Course I ain't never been to London, and I ain't never seen France. And I ain't never seen no queen in her damned undies, so the feller says. But I'll tell you what - after seeing Los Angeles, and this here story I'm about to unfold, well, I guess I seen somethin' every bit as stupefyin' as you'd seen in any of them other places. And in English, too. So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin' like the good Lord gypped me. Now this here story I'm about to unfold took place in the early 2000s - just about the time of our conflict with Sad'm and the I-raqis. I only mention it because sometimes there's a man... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? Sometimes, there's a man. And I'm talkin' about The Nick here - The Nick from Los Angeles. Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's The Nick. The Nick, from Los Angeles. And even if he's a lazy man - and The Nick was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in all of Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide. Sometimes there's a man, sometimes, there's a man. Well, I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced it enough.
