File Under:
Toads comma Exploding

I'm actually going to issue a warning on this one: this is not only really gross, but a little bit sad. Here's the long and short of it. Toads in Europe are exploding The scientists whose job it is to study this sort of thing aren't sure why, but one possible answer sounds quite like Hitchcock.

"I'm Jewish and people ask me why I'm selling Christian dolls. Religion is universal, my wife's Catholic — and faith is for everyone."

Perhaps its just Moses' beard reflecting in His eyes...

Food Fights comma Political

It's just not safe to be a conservative figure anymore. Especially at catered symposiums on midwestern college campuses. For what it's worth, I think Kristol got a better deal than Buchanan.

Although, the cream color does
out the red in Pat's tie.
