...actually posted at about half size as this image was 4000px wide, but it's hard to read the small print at sizes smaller than this. If I can't see it then you fogies sure can't! ;)

thats a nice "Marine Destroyer", to use the Japanese classification.   ::)
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
