Great sentence. - ErWenn, 2007-06-05: 02:56:00

could you imagine being held outside the country for not enough sexiness? that's why i always travel extra sexy. seriously, have you ever seen somebody extra sexy get stuck in a line anywhere? except the dmv, because no matter how many people there are waiting in line at the dmv, nobody can look sexy after 5 hours of hot breath and regrets. also, i like to imagine that there is a super sexy dmv where super sexy get their pictures taken and the pictures look good. also the workers are sexy. and the lines are shorter. - jadenguy, 2007-06-05: 10:08:00

Sexy DMV workers... riiiiight. - Clayton, 2007-06-05: 17:56:00
