  Tue. 12/25/12 8:40pm Grandmaster Henri Fenderpob, CJBMTP & Friend's:

We would like to apologize for the poor upkeep of our department store as of late. Someone keeps leaving the door unlocked at night and those young people are walking right in and buying the things we put on sale. I know we all got into this business for not making money but just for the thrill of the sale. so I see no alternative I'm sorry to say but to say that I'm getting out of the business once and for all. Say.

  Tue. 12/25/12 8:46pm dave:

with that performance of "i love cake", my holiday is complete. i didn't even realize it was incomplete. but it was, and now it's not.
  Tue. 12/25/12 8:47pm Alison Porchnik:

I am of the opinion that the Codger is just a crunchy, salty coating with a creamy sweet center.

yum, creamy sweet center
