      Lmao! Mr Ed, I presume. If you look anything like your nasty posts, you are the scariest looking guy ever. I'll bet he's not a trucker. He probably works in a circus or a carnival. The World's Most Nasty Person Alive.

    I hv questioned eddie's education myself. He cant even form a correct sentence. Half the stuff he writes doesnt make sense.

  10. Well,

    I always pictured him as some 60 year old hillbilly with no education & no teeth. Just a goober with too much time on his hands. It's probably why he's so nasty. Yee haw, huh Ed!

    Has anyone else noticed the spam explosion since CNN broke the report abuse function? It's like watching monkeys whacking a bomb with a stick. Seriously, make a mod CNN. I'll fix everything, or run mad with power like Col Kurtz.
