Happy Trails, spaz

Oh, I don't think we've seen the last of him!  Hahahaha*sob**sob*sob*sob*

Kudos to you sir, and kudos again!

...shut your sniveling little lips and haul your skinny little ass outta here!

There comes a time in every friendship when you have to say, I never liked you...get lost!

I remember one time in college we got this pledge drunk, locked him in the trunk of the car, abandoned the car in a junk yard...

Good Day, sir!
