Ya gotta love the internet nowadays.

She said he wanted to make whit mans fire.
What does Slim Whitman have to do with this? (LOL)
“Are we supposed to care what Lauren Robertson thinks about anything?”
Maybe we should. She and her contemporaries will be running the country in the not-too-distant future. We should be very worried.
No wonder correct English is so difficult for email fraudsters in Nigeria.
Ooh, a student.
What students dont know....
We loved the Disney films.
Don’t forget Mary Poppins.
My husbAnd refused to get rid of all the Disney VHS.
