The Daily Word in Salamanders, Man-Babies and Pseudo Polaroids
Ever wonder what America tastes like? Shitty beer. Literally.
Honesty shines a glaring light on your excuse for feeling funky. Try taking responsibility for your actions instead of blaming poor decision making on optical illusions. Realism FTW.

For the hipsters out there struggling to keep up with “vintage” trends at Urban Outfitters, you'll find hope in this lil' piece of machinery. Show everyone just how good you are at pretending you were born in the 60s.
No exceptions once you join the cult. Consider this a warning to everyone who values freedom of expression.
I guess nothing's impossible as long as you try hard (or long) enough. Happy Birthday, baby.
Explain to me why this needs legalizing again?
Man-baby disqualified from presidential candidacy? If only.
