Does this one, Snoop-doggy-dogg need to get a jobby-job?

can you take yes for an answer?

seriously, and i’ll gladly be donalded for this, i had been bone on bone for nearly three years in this knee and i dragged myself through our vacaion in australia last year using hydrocodone and aspirin and i had to make a change.

Have you ever had a shaved, silky, smooth, succulent, freshly buttered carrot served medium hot, with a spicy…

Crap, am I cheating on my wife with a carrot!?


Has anyone else in the thread earned a Freud yet?


Can a person Jung theirselves by their own petard?
