  • If your memory was as long as your dick, you'd be in good shape.
  • Well, I'm gonna solve it here or this bimbo you sent me is gonna be doing a donkey act on public access television. Her tits her tits her tits her tits. That she signed in her contract! We hired her because of 10 years at the Actors Studio, the way she played Medea? Her last two pictures lay there on the screen like my first wife.
