The ashes of the latter half of last week are beneath me, forgotten, as I am reborn, at work again, assuming this week will suck as well. also, if you wanted to know what his dad was doing, *spoilers* probably drinking? - jadenguy, 2007-06-18: 11:38:00

His father must have been well hung -over to have managed it from the other side of town - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-18: 11:49:00

that wasn't exactly the case, but let's just say they decided to stay together once the killherinsticts subsided. - jadenguy, 2007-06-18: 11:59:00

His mother was a peter panderer. (oops) - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-18: 13:00:00

Actually I think she only dated Dicks - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-18: 14:25:00

She dated John's son for a schlong time - maybe he was the father. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-18: 15:20:00

I think you're being a bit hard on John's son - he always practised safe sex - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-18: 15:43:00

HA! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-18: 15:53:00

i warned you guys about getting cocky with puns! i'm really gonna have to drop The Hammer sometimes. it's getting hard to come here night after night. - jadenguy, 2007-06-18: 17:27:00

OMG, too funny! I guess the pen-is mightier than the sword! - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-18: 17:55:00

hehe - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-18: 19:38:00

So, she dated John's son, and gave birth to Thomas, but where was John's Thomas? And how could she have known that Thomas wood grow into such a firm specimen? Sure, he seemed like a rigid tool to all the dorks he played ball with, but the staff found it hard to yank him. Of course, most of the jerks were jealous, having seen him whack multiple times with his club. Many of them attributed his exceptional schmuck to his years of wang chun training in Hung Dong. By the bellend he was ready to toss in the towel. - Clayton, 2007-06-18: 19:52:00

Clayton - you really are the master..... - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-18: 19:58:00

I try. How's that for a happy ending? - Clayton, 2007-06-18: 23:35:00
