That, I don’t get at all .... ^@^
~~Just for giggles .. PING!
~~Have a laugh .. PING!

“Hank, looking good with the beard.” “It’s Manuary buddy, act accordingly.”

5. It is OK to drive a gas-guzzler if it helps you get babes.
6. Everyone should car pool except us.
7. Bring back the word 'stewardesses.'
