    I am sorry guys but that post will only make someone who is truly twisted laugh. Oh man it is truly funny. It’s kind of like being told your volkswagen fell off a cliff a mile high, but there is a good side… it got 100 miles per gallon on fuel mileage on the way down. Number 13 particularly strikes a cord.
