NOTHING CAN STOP THE BLOB!

When I was 14, I went to Niagara Falls and spent $40 getting to the boss of this game only to run out of money and have two nerds come in and swoop the glory. I’ll see you in hell, thieves. Saw the falls for about one second. And as a consolation prize of sorts, […]

If Only the Guy Had Lived To Be 110 Years Old
