Going bush

Ugh! Just got home from appalling traffic on the highway and am too tired to do a full post outlining my experiences. You will have to content yourself with a point form description. I may expand on them later in the unlikely event interest is expressed on any of them.

  • All 4WD drivers (including female ones) have small penises. No exceptions.

    EDIT: Er, except for farmers and other people who need them in their day to day lives. For everyone else it should be illegal to own one and you can hire one when you actually need one. The roads will be safer and we'll be spewing less carbon monoxide into the atmosphere.

    I've finally uploaded a new photo to Roophilia 2.0!
