You picked the wrong shell, succor!

In my haste to get in early, I didn’t look for an explanatory image...
well consider the rest of them are tardy, you could have taken your time, it appears ; )
Hey, wait a minute! Didn’t they just finish up the World Cup of Succor? Down in Brazil, wasn’t it?
When Monica’s lips went to pucker
Bill knew she’d provide him with succor
But he said to his wife
“I do swear on my life
I never, not once, tried to f*** her!”
A+++ just saw that, i only knew him from Rockford files, but he was great.
OMG LMAO!! A+++++
extra credit +
Even I’m laughing, and I wrote it!
We must succor the cause of liberty before it is too late.
Many a succor falls for the Democrat Party lies — there is no help for them.
No more succor for 4 years.
isn’t that the dang truth! A+++
that many? A+++
It seemed that the players would succor assistance from the medical staff (and referees) quite frequently ...
A+++ Can you imagine a hockey player carrying on like that? RME. did this guy get a hangnail or what?
I was following the competition, and even the “experts” were saying that diving was way up this tournament .... There was also some study conducted recently which showed a general correlation that players from warmer climates tended to act out more I think the hardy eastern Europeans were least likely to do so.
SUVs, including crossovers, have overtaken sedans as the most popular vehicles for the first time.
stoics. yes, no writhing allowed. LOL!
totally understandable. who doesn’t want to be up a little higher in order to see better?
Then again, you’ve got your Ruskyie’s who are basically just cold-blooded b@st***s ....
That and not having to contort yourself to get in and out of the car.
well depends, xshub’s 4 runner and the Denali before it, requires me to hike myself up on the step to get in. It is a function of how high off the ground it is. Esp tough in a dress.
Beautiful beach resort!
Haha - probably true!
that’s not without its benefits
I don’t think climbing up is nearly as bad as having to crouch down and twist to get into a low car. Of course, my cars are just right. Just open the door and sit down.

You mean from the paparazzi crotch photo angle?
I prefer to call it the PCPA, just to come off a tad less pervy; but yes
VPA. Anytime there is a girl with a skirt on, somewhere there is the Visual Panty Angle. I learned that from the UK series “Coupling.”
But were you ever caught in a giggle loop?
Until the melty man cometh.
You shouldn’t mention the Melty Man.
Just got home from doing an estimate to deliver later today or tomorrow-
If Obama’s minions want us
To accept the illegals here
They need to succor them all-
Most of us won’t shed a tear
To see those kids of all ages
From training pants to tattoos
Put on the first flight out-
Now that would be great news
If the liberals want them so much
Take them home, with all haste
We’ll laugh as the human locusts
Lay those fancy homes to waste...
And I’ll bet if that happened, every liberal member of congress would instantly have a full domestic staff-even if they lived alone-none of whom spoke English, and all paid way below minimum wage-butler, maids for every room, at least two cooks, laundress...
I prefer climbing up and into a 4x4 to scrunching down into something like that old 300ZX I drive-and my tools and stuff fit into the 4Runner very nicely...
That old ZX I used to drive-I sold it to a co-worker-the suspension was trashed by the rough roads out here, but he only wanted it for the engine and transmission, which I always maintained very well...
I think “Inferno,” with its impassioned speech at the end, is one of the best sitcom episodes ever.
