Communists! Giving away stuff like that will drive all the legitimate business girls on the street out of business.

I liked it. But it made me wonder how does one find the time to do something like that? What do you have to give up?

Interesting about how moving inside to a mall triggered the process. I wonder how long it took the younger females to start getting the hugs over the older gentleman??? Okay, I'm over analyzing.......

Maybe the left wing sickos who conceived this sexually ill-defined tripe should include an air sickness bag with every copy they sell, because Mister, this is the kind of queer eye media terrorism that make a sane man want to puke. Oh sure, I've heard all the arguments. "Make love not war." "War is not the answer." "War is not healthy for babies and other living things." Think so, Pinko? Well, how about a hot load of lead from a Russian made AK47 tearing through the fabric of your bullet proof vest? Does that sound like a healthy lifestyle to you? Or how about spending a pleasant evening drinking foriegn-made beer with your so-called liberal friends, only to wake up the next morning with a roofy headache and your bunghole enlarged to three times it's normal size? Now what do you think of hippy heaven, soldier? No, I'll take my hugs from my legally betrothed wife -- who was actually born a woman -- at 8 PM, behind closed doors, with the lights off and a dvd of "Red Dawn" playing gently the background.

Well, you do have a point there...

This is the most eloquent posting I have ever read on an internet forum. Friday lives. There is hope for regular guys everywhere.

This is almost how I met my wife 36 years ago!

She doesn't look at this forum unless I insist. She loved this video, though,

Thanks Grampy for sharing this with us.
