    Maybe the worst thing I’ve ever seen. The fact that some people seem to like it is a rousing testament to the proposition that the world is filled with white trash.

  • Hitman

    Dog, Maybe if you invited these guys to come to your church to speak you would have a different opinion. I’ve included the link for you to send them a invite.


    Yes they are acting, beleive it or not that is what most of the folks on tv shows do! No one really wants to watch a show about real life, we live that everyday.
