  • Beautiful, John! I love the parable of the Good Samaritan -- it's probably my favorite. You are a kind and thoughtful man. Let's keep a good thought that somewhere, deep down inside of himself, chayce got it!

  • Wow. How'd that little neuticle get back in here? Thanks for the reciprocity, John. :-D

  • Well taken, John. Still, I like the image of chayce's detachiballs...

    Skipvia, you 12 year old penios licker. HA HA HA!!!

    Cereal?! WTF?!

  • It appears that chayce's testicles detach, somehow.

  • Probably chayce doesn't have any testicles. Poor thing.

  • Maybe chayce is channeling Cartman. Or maybe it's 8 years old. It's obviously rude and stoopid.

  • Got a troll in here, have we?
