Bone Machine’s Ode to Meltzer’s Ravishing Body
The guy was totally beefed.
He was a shirtbreaker and a lovemaker.
Look… the guy was a straight up sleeve-busting flex master.
Let it never be said that the man’s body didn’t convert various proteins into muscle mass.
I’M TELLIN YA, THE GUY WAS CHEESED TO THE EDGE OF THE PLATTER!
I’M TALKIN SOLID MUSCLE, DADDY!
