Make a buck wherever you can.....................
The continuation of the degrading of our society.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Ensler wrote about her vagina

“Happy coming off party?”
Waiting for Mr. Deeds poetry in 3...2...1....

I’m going to get one and send it to my brother in law.
Today is Your Special Day
We wish Nothing But the Best
When you chop your penis off
And make room for the breasts
Capitalism is great until it’s not?
I don't think it's 'societal stigma' that is to blame for their mental anguish...
Or make a doe from a buck, it’s all mad science...
Are they with the Sympathy cards, or the Mentally ill cards?
Do the cards come with shears on the front?
while I can’t blame Hallmark for wanting to cash in...
I can shake my head in disapproval over them being the top dog and lobbyist for creating useless holidays for them to sell their wares....
I wonder how many lobbyists Halmark has on K-Street lobbying for new stupid holidays....
