And I love Roger Ailes as well, as soon as SCOTUS makes marriage legal between LGBT/LSMFT/XY&Z/COUSINS & TRILOBITES, we intend to have a three way marriage with Sean Hannity.

AMEN, we have a winner, proof in writing, thank you Oski 10's for doing the leg work. The issue became controversial when Serena Williams threatened to shove a tennis ball down the throat of the diminutive Asian woman linesperson at the USO and kill her with it. It was then that historic revisionism of the foot fault rule began. BTW, I've yet to hear an apology to the lines lady but I have seen numerous commercials by Serena and her sponsors making light of the very ugly incident.

Bartleby, does that red star you use for an icon mean you work for Macy's, or are you trying to help to drive their stock up?

Nice match, virtual handshake.
