    That was hillarious. How dumb can this guy be, or is it that these other guys don't really show that they are christians? I find it amusing how he talks about all these great brands these guy know about that he's never heard of :D

    Edit: Ok after looking at some of the other stories on there I am wondering if they are serious.

    I am wondering if YOU are serious. :spit:

    At least you aren't embarrassing yourself on a national level like the lady who wrote to Reader's Digest and quoted The Onion as a source of some info she gave.

    The fact that some friends of mine are a carbon copy of that story make it even funnier.

    Yes! That's my alltime favorite! "Simms also suddenly put off plans to quit the band, though he maintains that his recent sexual encounter had nothing to do with his sudden change of heart."
