Thumbs down

A collection of stories that simply were not believable, not helped when the narrator jingled coins at the end of one story.
The sort of thing you might want to listen to on a hot Mississippi night on a rocking chair on the front porch drinking a beer when you get tired of listening to the bug zapper.
