Hey McClown...at this rate of snowfall you will not be able to see out your mothers basement windows for months! The 'clown cave' will not only be cold...but now dark as well...save for the glow of your Commodore 64.

Call the sheriff immediately, time for him to evict me from your mind since I have not been paying you any rent.
Just Sayin January 06, 2014 at 09:42 AM
McClown....Awwwww...thanx for your concern old man but given the limitless capacity of my mind...I don't charge rent to any inhabitant. It should be your mother calling the sheriff!
McCloud January 06, 2014 at 03:38 PM
You've always had a crush on my mother, please stop. She's out of your league.
Just Sayin January 06, 2014 at 04:49 PM
McClown...I belong to several leagues and you are technically correct...she is definitely out of my leagues. Nary an older woman to be seen at meetings etc. While I do not have a "crush" on her...I imagine she is a wonderful woman...evidenced by her tolerance to let a overgrown unemployed son live rent free in her basement all these years. My God man....the least you can do is shovel the walks for her!

Just Sayin. You sound just like her. Nag nag nag. She's not having to mow the yard right now, and the exercise is good for her artificial hips.

Group session is cancelled again today guys. The short bus can't get out of the stall. You will have plenty of material to tell the doc on Wednesday.

Good news Boys, the Extenze truck just turned on your street. Your packages are waiting to be enhanced.
Just Sayin January 07, 2014 at 07:06 PM
McClown...Great to know...Thanx! It is my first experimental purchase and...frankly had it not been for your glowing 300 word review on the Extenze website I may not have made the purchase! Why you are so impressed by the product I can not even guess since you have not been within 6 feet of a willing female in well over 40 years. To every man his kink I guess. But...thanx again for your enthusiastic endorsement!
