I want to know how long he practiced sideburns! He has to get bonus points for that.....

In fact, from now on.... all sideburns should be called... Prestons! Nice set of Prestons that guy has... Your Prestons are getting a little long.... How would you like your Prestons? Do you want me to shave them off?
