This could only happen in America, the land of the free, amirite?

I've told my wife that, if I go first, I want her to go to the mall in December, punch Santa in the Jimmy, and yell "You ain't real!"

The police were pissed because it wasn't champagne from Champagne, but rather sparkling wine.

If she'd done that (in France), she'd be in jail, not getting a fine

L'officier de police n ° 1 à l'agent de police n ° 2

«Voici une occasion idéale pour agir comme un trou du cul et sortir avec elle!"

"Passer de Let"

En français, bien sûr.

The husband is already stoned.

Sounds like another press release from the Department of Half the Story.

If you are lucky to fall in with the first category, fun times!!

que du bonheur

It wasn't so much the champagne as the dancing. She was making quite a ruckus what with the hootin' and the hollerin'.
