The downfall of the organization for recovering bra-and-jock-strap fetishists was sewn by the fact they allowed them to call it a “support group”. Why say “rest stop hooker” when you can say ...

Ollie the dog wouldn’t eat anything today until the dinner scraps came. He knows what’s up. He’s wily. He wanted the good stuff and he planned. I respect that weird fuzzy little lump so much. ...
