The guy with more than one mustang is complaining about custom exhaust.

Like the girl who drew the picture of her mom, who worked at Home Depot, selling shovels. It looked like mom was dancing around a pole.

So watch out Big East. Next Fall, the shiv carrying Pirate Princess will be gunning for you.
Woo hoo, congrats

Morning guys. Still trying to get to the Keys for a day but can't find anyone to watch the mutt I did not want.

Disney's announcement that they will keep the park open 24 hours on May 24 has me excited. We will be there. Have to change our park schedule a little bit but I think it could be fun. Not planning on spending the entire day there but hope to go to park opening and end with the park closing 24 hours later.

Watched the Heat go up 3-0 instead. Did flip to the draft during commercials but had the sound on mute. Could not stand listening to Kiper and Gruden.

You win the Internet for the day. She must be doing something right to sell all those shovels.

The Heat really just walked through that game. I would do the 24 hours in the park as there won't be that many opportunities to do so.

Now I get how you go on all those diving trips. You have to check on the concrete shoes, huh?

Dealer and a Pole Dancer. Sounds like a wonderful pair. (double pun intended)

Ok, guys, I need some help.

I'm creating trophies for the DDC fantasy baseball league. I'm going to make a trophy for the teams with the largest margin of victory/defeat in their weekly match. The winning trophy will be bacon, but what is the opposite of bacon?


And I've already used Beverly for the lowest score of the week.

Bring him along. I'm sure one of those sharks would love to watch him for an afternoon.

At their age, my kids could never do 24 hours. Fuel me up on Mountain Dew and deep fried Snickers and I'm game to give it a shot.

Ahhh, Elementary School Career Days…
My job can’t be explained in less then seventeen stunningly boring paragraphs.
I was never invited, and I ain’t unhappy about it.


Of course I could’a said I was a Hacker…
But that wasn’t near as fashionable ten years ago.
