strangerdanger raises the microphone to his lips and parts them, making the eager crowd cheer. he takes in a deep breath, feeling the sweat roll down his forehead, tasting the salty sensation in his eyes and mouth. he breathes out and tries to sing... but the words just wont come out.

carl is now official karaoke champion.
