It’s more likely that Smilin’ Bob accidently dropped some of his Enzyte overboard while trying to chase down the cruise ship’s masseuse and get her to release his second chakra.

THIS will make Headline News” !

Liberals are always reoccupied with sex - maybe it’s because no one wants to be with them for long.

Calamari, it’s not just for eating anymore.

Well thank goodness that mystery has been solved.

I’ll be scratching this off of my “Wonders Of The World” list.... and adding it to my wife’s.

Off course, these poor critters will soon be harvested to near extinction, once the Chinese “eat strange stuff to make it bigger crowd” learns of this.

It's fun when you're young, but take it from me: after a while, it becomes just one more load you have to schlep.

What the researchers failed to mention is that it's only the blacks of the species that are so... well... endowed?
