Out Out Damn Bastard
About two weeks ago, one of our pals got dumped by a man who
(1) has hair plugs,
(2) has no credit so mooches off his ex's apartment,
(3) has teeth that would embarass Steve Buscemi and
it turns out....
a whole other girlfriend.

We- Love- You- We- Love- You- Not Air Signs
(Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:
Ask them to commit to anything larger than a lunch and they'll literally
