  8. Shad - are you gay?

    Just received this text on my phone and thought I'd share it with you all -

    BORED - press 1
    HORNY - press 2
    ORAL - press 3
    69 - press 4
    ORGASM - press 5
    WANT IT ALL - Dial my number    ;D
  9. Got another good email the other day that had the top ten "best" successful litigation cases in the States.  Can't remember all of them but the best one was a guy who bought a wannbago(spelling? those big camper vans) and thought cruise control meant he could switch it on and go out the back and make coffee.  When he went off the side of the highway at 55 and down a bank he guessed it wasn't designed to steer it as well.  BUT the sales guy never told him he took the poor salesman to court and walked away with a load of bucks!
  10. this is a great text message to send someone. I got it and I thought 'oh no, what have I done?' until I got to the end of it.

    'I thought I could trust you and say anything to you, but you had to go and open your big mouth. I'll never trust you again. Stop telling everyone I'm fcukin gorgeous!'

    Obviously you don't get all the message on screen, you have to scroll down to get to the end, so it really does have you thinking 'fcukin hell, what have I done' ;D
  11. But I'm ugly.
  12. ok Shad - in your case, you could change the last word from gorgeous to ugly.

    your words not mine ;)
  13. Wait til you see me naked then you'll know I'm ugly ;)
  14. I'll take your word for that.

    Beauty is only skin deep and all that.......
