"It came in my Cracker Jack Box

Does it drive in the snow?

No! It freaks out if it runs into patches of yellow snow, so I don't risk it.

    • No. My orphan doesn’t like stranger (typical response:

    • Sure. Can you buy me lunch? I’m hungry.

 

We'd love to see one of the flyers. Do you know which member may have them? (So we can reach out to him or her).

Also, these are pretty funny.
