Re: 1415: "Ballooning"

Also, pre-copulatory sexual cannibalism: not want, Mary Jane in bondage: fuck yeah.

Re: What-If 0098: "Blood Alcohol"

Just wanted to drop in with the highly interesting fact that if you /s/blood/urine and /s/alcohol/fly amanita,

Re: 1368: "One Of The"

One of the German language peeve corners in a magazine I read a long time ago had exactly this theme,
