I have a mule up in Windsor that has a 14 incher and can perform industrial induction at the drop of a dime. The washing part is out of question.

American car companies haven't done things that r silly? I remember at 98 press release at cobo of Cadillac deville.they had some young man doing olympic type acrobatics and in background another man was proclaiming how the strength of this new car with northstar engine was,engine burned oil, wasn't durable etc. This engine has been out for years and it still gave Cadillac a bad image.later when people sold used caddys,many that didnt have northstar engine was used as selling feature.

I've come up with this amazing idea.

You stretch a wire coat hanger over your head, then you twist the hook so that the point is facing you. By doing this you can hang a picture on the hook and masturbate without having to hold the picture, leaving your other hand free to use at your leisure!
