Turns out America's premier all-time mobster Al Capone was a sentimental music composer, and the sheet music for his Italian love song (from Alcatraz) is on sale for $65k ("Madonna mia / You're the bloom of the roses / You're the charm that reposes" and "With your true love to guide me / Let whatever betide me")/ Associated Press via The Pantagraph (Bloomington, Ill.) /// Lyrics

Plastic Surgery Art - There's only images of the nose jobs?? I demand to see the before and after pictures of the horrific birth defects. How else can I judge if it should be classified as art?

Wife - Go ahead and say No. He'll give in long before you starve. He's male, he can't help it.

Al Capone - That's the song that should be playing in the background when he's bashing that guy's head in with the baseball bat, in The Untouchables.

Violence - The only thing that surprises me about this article is that it happened in British Columbia.

Jury Duty - Get that man to a taxidermist! I could use a "bear" skin rug in front of the fire place.

breast milk cheese- that is just so very disgusting! :sick:

plastic surgons- aren't they breaking the hippa laws? (privacy of medical records)

sex for food- like those women ever have any real choice, but atleast they don't live in africa the land of clitoralectomies.

al capone- did he write this before or after the syphillis got to his brain?

shoplifter- she just wanted to use the barter system.

hunter/bride- i thought it was supposed to be a rabbit! :lol: i bet she told him if he ever fooled around he'd become the turkey.

violence- there's a reason they call it an idiot box, because quite frequently idiots watch it!

poop- hose him down, cuff him, sedate him, and send his sorry ass home!

fell off bridge- think he's hurt bad enough to learn his lesson? (probably not)

jury duty- guilty of excessive furriness. he should get implants on his head from his back. in fact he could donate enough hair for several bald guy to get full heads of hair.

I could be wrong, but I thought breast milk did not have enough fat in it to curdle for cheese? He probably mixed it with something, in which case it would be cow milk with a hint of Alejandra.

i would think that any milk's fat content is related to the fat content of the diet of the producer of the milk.
