    • That awkward moment when you realize some of the wealthiest cities are in Spanish: “San Francisco, San Diego, Palo Alto, Moraga, Orinda, San Ramon”. LOL

    • Yes! That’s the kind of shirt one must wear to a bank robbery! I wonder who manufactured it? Maybe I should design some fabric showing red traffic lights, stop signs, liquor bottles and grocery items for those who want to knock over a liquor store, run a red light and a stop signs, etc. Ya think?

  1. On a real and reality note, people are getting more and more desperate nowadays. We need to be more aware of our surroundings and who we associate with. Social media and the internet has turn our society into impatient envious human beings that can’t keep there d*** in there pants.
