“bucko money” gets dozens of Googits.
Doesn't anyone wish to make bucko money?
They make bucko money off of their cartridge sales.
Bonus points to wiked87gn (banned) for the authentic-sounding “mucho”:
if its the one i am thinking about this is a black guy who owns it, with mucho bucko money to throw out, i have seen the car in person….
And bonus points to vindication for the vocative “amigo” thrown in
autoexe is bucko bucko bucko money amigo.
