  • Wha kinda butthole beard is tha?

  • There was alot of weed growing her in the 70s people kept it to themselves. Instead of bragging about it…

  • Where did the Salmon go? Maybe we could ask the Yurok about neighborhood changes since 1949.

  • He could have doubled for Nicolas Cage in another life. Shame.

  • Brainiac, with Meth and a gun!

    How may times do they catch and release before something sticks and he has to go through withdrawal?
