If God were still alive, he'd be crying right now.

Dear God, no.

I'm in mourning.

im watching live coverage, firefighters just went in
2003-08-04 4:14:11 PM  
If the firefighters would just use millions of gallons of Coke, everything would be fine.
2003-08-04 4:14:32 PM  
That must be some bad whiskey if I haven't heard of it.

Knob Creek and Booker's are the best. Jack if I'm in a fightin mood. Maker's Mark is up there, but it's too dry. Sucks the water out of your tongue, like my old girlfriend used to.
2003-08-04 4:14:34 PM  
Quick! Get several tons of sugar and a slaughterhouse worth of pork! God just gave the area the best ham-glaze-barbecue opportunity EVER!
