You know, I had never heard of a Shire horse until I looked up draft horses for my post on Extreme Croquet, now here is one in this post. Weird. But, that's what this place is all about!

Guilty of having a freaky mustache!

Shire horse? Do hobbits ride them?

I knew I shouldn't have looked at the tumor-leg woman. I knew it and I clicked the Bild link ayway.

She doesn't have nice legs.

Dumbfounded, your quote "It often seems that the only purpose of government is to give handouts to those they credit with putting them in office. Which, I guess, is why the Democrats give them to people and the Republicans give them to to big business." is going on a plaque that I'm going to hang on my wall.

Damn Kingmonkey for his almost telepathic control of my clicking finger!!! (I do remember that Silent Hill enemy, however).

Mustache? That's quite obviously pubic hair glued to his chin!!
