Fraud

June 30th, 2011 by Vader

I have been in touch with my fellow designers of weapons of mass destruction at Los Alamos, New Mexico, who have been driven out of town by the 90,000-acre Los Conchas wild fire.

You are unwise

June 23rd, 2011 by Vader

To condition your dog this way.

UPDATE: No longer up at the loldogs site. Probably a wise decision by the proprietors given the insanity of what was being depicted (a father holding out his baby to a frightened dog).
