    Is it obscene to work with whipped cream? Is it perhaps ludicrous to smear sugary white foam all over my body, or to make a whipped cream boobie sandwich between myself and Sammie Rhodes?

    I've always liked Aurora Snow.

    Charlie Butts? Seriously?

    Even better is that for which Mr. Butts writes is part of the "American Family" News Network.

    I wish it was raw milk so the FDA and USDA would get involved!! Let's have a full-on regulatory orgy!!!!!

    He thinks the material being distributed is so vial, the case ought to be won. "But believe me, if it isn't, the pornography industry and some in government will cheer that the case is lost," he adds.

  • Tim||

    You are being sarcastic, right? He who is without sin cast the first stone.

  • cynical||

    Yes, that was sarcasm. Maybe you should take a break from the internets.

  • Abdul||

    Another Stagliano post? How much money did this guy donate? Who knew the milk enema industry was so lucrative?

    Porn is what makes DC a cesspool?

    Porn and GUNZ, dude.
