This is lame beyond belief, Wack Willy. With this "logic", jerks

Don't take the high road with me; you've got too many recent
comments involving homosexual oral copulation and posterior romance for

I have a serious question for you. What are you on? No, seriously.
How do we know he doesn't fly a P-51 to work every day? You are the one
who opined about what his nym means, and now you're coming up with
psychotic crap for screwing up info about a car model that *you* own.
You are one very sick person. And from what I can see, getting worse
by the day.
Go suck on your 352-inch Shelbys, Mr. Correct.
