    I'm a prune. Deliciously satisfying and healthy. Natural goodness that aids digestion. Nature's wonder food.

      I agree. The colored post too many negative things about us humans. They are silly apes.

      Quit calling me a colored. I'm not colored. My skin is just dark because I use an all natural p ooop based moisturizer. I'll be wrinkle free while the rest of you become dried up old prunes.

    I will post the one thing I was going to before being distracted by all the disgusting posts throughout these blogs, then call it a day. Not that I expect a mature response judging from past posts... Time hasn't been kind to the gentleman in the dead center of the picture. He used to be the most handsome of the "Boys" but now he looks very aged. All the rest seem much healthier and happier.

      It may be the beard making him look a little older. If we are lucky we all get older one day.

      Cassie needs to go to the foodie blog. This is not the blog for you, if you find these posts offensive. These comments have been quite mild, and you are reporting abuse? You haven't seen anything yet. Time for you to move on if you are offended. It's just the way of the Marquee.

    I see it's not just one story. The vulgarities are all over these blogs. CNN really needs to do a better job moderating these posts.

    I once threw a couple of lit M80s down the hole of a porta pottie. The 2 explosions were deafening. The inside was covered in filth afterward and a toxic sludge leaked out from a blast hole in the bottom.

    Today I went over to my neighbors with a bag full of my butt custard and some m80's. I climbed up a tree and when they came out I lit the m80's and dropped the bag. It was awesome! Chunks of my butt dumplings got in their hair.
