    Too much treble is a Communist plot to scramble our brains and make us senseless.

    #518 Really? Where do you live? Never mind, I know where you live, well, sort of in a general California state of mind way, but really? You see that kind of shoe?

      OH MY GOD. They’re expensive italian shoes and men usually wear them with tight straight ankled (NOT FLAIRED AT ALL) so they literally look like their feel are gondolas.

    We get those pointy sort of leather shoes in a “cowboy” boot style. Actually it’s Caballero style, if you get what I mean.

    • Cupcake Murphy says:

      No it’s more severe and weirder than the lovely cowboy boot. They’re dress shoes. I’ll hope to find a pair soon and take a photo of it and post in here (and in every goddamn newspaper across the land)

  5. Whoops. Confusing, just like life right now.

  7. Please don’t mess with my toilet paper, I need all of it.
