This past Monday, Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, and Jackson Nicoll hopped in a jet plane, jumped up to the San Francisco area, and stepped onto a bus that whipped them around the campuses of a few companies that dabble in the social networking arena. You know, just some little joints like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter (with a quick stop off at the Bleacher Report dugout). Aside from some quick tours of the much vaunted facilities and the employee perks that would turn an ordinary cubicle bee LED green with envy, Knoxville, Tremaine, and Jackson manboyhandled a run of Q&A sessions with employees and fans alike, spreading Bad Grandpa awareness and fear of the "Jackson Five" from zipper-to-zipper all along the way.

Later that night, after saying goodbye to Jackson, the remainders of our group popped into a UC Berkeley fraternity house surprise-style just as they were wrapping up a backyard screening of Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. While Knoxville dealt with the ensuing enthused swarm, Tremaine and Shanna avidly took to reliving their collegiate years on the sidelines with true party panache. Spring Break '95—woohoo!
