I wonder if the girls in the spambot avatar pics have their own Twitter feeds. I bet they use a picture of R2D2 for their avatar.

Take ’em to Nordstom. Charge $100 to take them back out of the store. They’ll pay. MT @Twinfamy: Anybody know of a way to monetize crying?

I guess my shrew wasn’t that tame after all; he just killed a mocking bird.

Well, in that case, I’m an asshole. No really, I am. Really. RT @MoistPork: I think people who are assholes maybe just need a hug.
