You know, If fifty lashes would have saved me from doing some of the things I did while under the influence, I’d take them in a New York minute.

Hillary got off lucky in Egypt. I hope she stays sober if Mali is on the docket.
Ah good old ROP at it again

After fifty lashes, I bet he could really go for another drink!
