    This is an old joke that's been around for a long time.

    Funny, but not a true story.

    DAMMIT!!! Had to ruin the fun! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Anyways, I wonder if you were to look up a story about a certain member on this site and how cold and ruthless he can be, would it be a true or false story. His name is MJ. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
