  1. I didn’t go to Carlos’ when I lived in Hoboken, even before the stupid “OMG we gotta the wrong color a frosting ona thisa cakea wassamatta u Luigi?” show. There were better bakeries in town.

    Having said that I hope they find who called this in and prosecute the shit out of them, regardless of their age.

  2. Clearly, it’s Obama’s fault

  3. No Obama didn’t know about it. He said it was Bush’s and the insurance company fault

  4. Anonymous:

    Clearly, it’s Obama’s fault

    No imagination.
