Oakley always used to be the preferred brand of sandpaper.

grit your teeth and rub away - be careful tho, it can make grown men cry.

The moral of the story is; be careful what you rub your balls with, and don't let anyone see you doing it!

Okay, what type of weirdness is going on down there with the Sandpaper thing?

 We Americans are too busy wincing at the things agent Orange says everyday. World news is kind of blotted out by his rotund head. *sad2*
