Filmmaker. Comedian. Athlete. Class Act. Talented. These are all things that Derek Pons hopes he will be someday. What is he now? Instead of just telling you outright, why don't I instead tell you a story about Derek, who we (his good friends) lovingly call
The Legend of Derek: Baby Slayer
Once upon a time in the land of Wilmington, Fere lived a young man by the name of Derek. Derek was a happy young lad, so full of life and wonderment. You would think, by Fe way he spoke of Fings that he liked, Fat he enjoyed everything as Fough it was Fe "greatest Fing ever!" Fis remained true one of Fe days he attended a gaFering at a friend's house. Two of Derek's friends, known to all as the Thrill Killers, had recently given birF to a beautiful baby girl. Derek saw a lot of himself in this infant child; Fe wonderment, Fe difficulty speaking, Fe golden locks, Fe baby face (he never could grow a beard). Derek immediately took a liking to the child. Oh, how Fey played together, Fe two young friends!
But Fen, someFing happened. No one knows for sure what came between Fe two friends at that moment, but someFing happened indeed. You could see it in Derek's face... he was plotting. Before anyone knew what happened, Derek had struck! He lashed out, foot delivering the wraF of Derek with astonishing speed, sending Fe baby girl flying end over end across the room. Everyone was stunned by the speed and ferocity of Derek's outburst, but he showed no remorse. He simply laughed at Fe mistfortue of Fe poor baby child. If you listen closely, you can still hear his laughter, even today...

So now you have a slight idea of Derek, the man. I may have kept out a few of the more incriminating parts of the story, for Derek's sake, but the events occurred almost exactly like it is written there. Shocking, and tragic I know.
But what else can I tell you about Derek, you ask? Well, he has quite possibly the best Beach photo of all time. How good you ask? Good enough to double the followers on my blog, if not triple them. Behold: Beach Bod Derek!

There really is too much to talk about with my friend Derek. You can't sum him up in just a few hundred words, and nor would I want to try. Instead, let me give you a list of "States of Derek" that you want to catch him in in order to get a good picture.
- Incredulous Derek- Very common
- Dad Joke Derek- Common
- Film Derek- Always
- Lost Fanatic Derek- Not as common as it used to be
- Beach Bod Derek- Seasonal
- Fedora Derek- Rare
- Dancin' Derek- In between
Let me be serious for a minute though. Derek, we love ya. You are a great friend to have, always fun to have around and you suck at cooking. Oops! what I meant was, it wouldn't be the same without you around here, and I'm gla... I'm glaaaa.... sorry, it's a bit hard to say. I'm glad we hang out. Your enthusiasm and good attitude are truly infectious, and I can't think of anyone better to go on a trip with, or go to a concert with, or just generally hang out with. Your good nature and fierce friendship are one of a kind. There! Compliment paid. See, now it's like a roast, so I don't feel bad about posting Beach Bod picture or talking about how bad you suck at cooking. Anyways, here are some scores and merit badges:
Physical Prowess: 3/10 (ha ha got one last dig in there!)
Movie Opinions: Well, at least you and I can agree on Hot Fuzz
Overall: He's a Swell Dude!
Best Knee Explosion!
