Tar Baby Defenses
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

This simplistic approach is versatile and active if you don't mind an IQP which requires careful watch over. Play it at the club; it'll make you a better clubber... for better and for worse, for richer and poorer, in sickness and in health, until death or divorce do we part.

Thank you, ISeth, saveyougod.
