Goo Finger hasn't a chance, with new tiddy wipes for babies and helmet flyers.

I invented the tiddy wipe. That's what they use on the outside of the p-38 to keep that mirror finish.

And it's a good thing Barney went with them! Thelma Lou and I split a bottle of cooking cherry and she showed me her wild side. I've been humming ever since.

Opie, you pinhead, I have bad news. Better sit down. No, don't stand on your head in the corner. Sit on your corn-hole, not your pie-hole. OK, do whatever you want. The news is... Andy be's DEAD.

You know this is a topic that angers most of us. I think we already pay for the use of these bags when we shop at stores. Stores are constantly raising the prices of products to cover for the expenses they occur in their businesses. Most people recycle using the recycle bins that we pay for in our cities. This bothers me because not only are we charged for using the recycle bin each month but we are not given any discounts or discount pricing for using the recycle bins and we most definitely are charged a fee when items are purchased because their is the assumption that we will redeem them for the recycle value. This means that more money is going to come out of our pockets as a result of this law and what will this law change.........nothing!

Is her wild side that side that was left out in the sun? Like the peach and karsavina crack?

Nothing quite so exotic for Thelma Lou I'm afraid. But I'll have it check with her crack dealer.

Of course I mean "to" check. She gets me so flustered. I nearly burnt last night's peach pie.

The only way Opie is fishing with Andy is if the little pin-head went to Mt. Ivy, NC and robbed the grave. Propping a corpse up against a tree is a serious crime. Don't say I didn't warn you, Dik-Head.
