Bring your snowballs to Mrs. Bailey and let the dipping commence. Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-HEE-HAW!!!

Rest In Peace, Elwanda Greer

Listen, People. It is not our job to tell you about the Bird and the Bees. But if you can't figure out on your own that a 71 year old woman can't get pregnant, then maybe you shouldn't be having 'Sexy Sexy Time" in the first place. Put down the sweets as we start counting calories here at the Pod. It's time we all went through some CH-CH-CH-CH-CHA-CHANGES!
