    Lucky for me I don’t need to rent my kids as indentured servants because they already earn me income by maintaining the website for my indentured servant business.

    Child labor as payback for mother’s labor? Brings back memories of products advertised in comic books 50 years ago. I was too smart to believe in the x-ray glasses.

      I think the reformers of 125 years ago were a little too hasty in condemning child labor. Strangely, I’m reminded of this every time I’m in the candy aisle at Wal-Mart when the little darlings are “expressing” themselves.

    17 volumes!!! Why we’re no more complicated than the average IKEA assembly, surely. lol

    I’ll take a peck of the dental appliances. Ship them directly to Washington D,C., where my associate will dispense them in all the appropriate chairs.
    Good Day Sir.

      Maybe. But you don’t come with your own little hex wrench and screws in a plastic bag.

    Awesome truss. Too long I’ve wondered just how I to show my patriotism WHILE causing massive irreversible testicular trauma.
    (Incidentally, I saw that gentlemen at another parade I’m known to frequent- HELLO SAILOR!)

    “Hello, Sailor?” I can only assume you mean commencement exercises at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis.
