Sherry and champagne are childs play. I wonder how long someone would live if they drank nothing but egg nog.

Everyday would be Christmas if I could unwrap a present that looked as good as FLA Chickie.

Wintermute,
That is exactly what popped into my head.
"It is wafer thin"
"Fugg' Off !"
 
2001-12-27 5:07:49 PM  
The answer, obviously, is Tofurkey!

Now it can be an answer to a question that isn't "What really sucks ass?"

Maybe Frank2 will get an attention span next Christmas.

Everyday would be Christmas if I could unwrap a present that looked as good as FLA Chickie.

How about receiving a free ticket to a gun control debate between MyTwoCents, FLA Chickie, and GirlyGirl, each of whom would only wear a bra and panties during the show?
 
2001-12-27 5:11:50 PM  
Gravy cubes!!! Yech!

I bet girly girl doesn't eat like that.
 
2001-12-27 5:14:03 PM

Most people like turkey, but christ, 5400 of them!

GirlyGirl - You just keep eating whatever you've been eating. It does your body good.

Love to eat turkey...
Love to eat turkey...

Love to eat turkey cause it's good
Love to eat turkey like a good boy should
'Cause it's turkey to eat
So good

A turkey for me, turkey for you,
Let's eat turkey in a big brown shoe.

Love to eat turkey at the table,
I once saw a movie with Betty Grable.

Eat that turkey all night long,
50 million Elvis fans can't be wrong.

Turkey turkey dee, turkey turkey dap,
I eat the turkey and I take a nap


Thanksgiving is a special night
Jimmie Walker used to say "Dynomite"


Turkey with the gravy and the cranberry
Can't believe the Mets traded Darryl Strawberry

Turkey for you, turkey for me,
Can't believe Tyson gave the girl V.D.

Gobble gobble dee, gobble gobble dawkie,
I used to go to camp at Lake Winnepesaukee

Turkey turkey dee, turkey turkey duffin,
Love to eat turkey with a lot of stuffin'

Turkey for me, turkey for you,
Let's eat turkey in a big brown shoe.

White meat, dark meat you just can't lose
I fell off my moped and I got a bruise

Turkey in the oven and the buns in the toaster
I'll never take down my Cheryl Tiegs poster

Wrap the turkey up in aluminum foil
My brother likes to masturbate with baby oil

Turkey and sweet potato pie,
Sammy Davis Jr. only had one eye

Turkey with the girls, turkey with the boys,
My favorite kind of pants are corduoroys

Gobble gobble gee, gobble gobble gickle
I wish turkeys only cost a nickel.

2001-12-27 6:18:02 PM  
Icehouse & Behula_Ballbreaker,
GirlyGirl is attractive. So is MyTwoCents.
But my FARK fiance, FLA Chickie, is so voluptuous.
She is the one for me.
