I forward chain letters. I don't do it because I enjoy it. Rather, I do it because if I don't someone will die according the chain letter. I do it for them!

I hate forwards, but I don't see anything wrong with this, actually it looks like something I would have posted myself if I was bored enough.

Yeah, I've heard the majority of these before in government, I believe. It's missing a really funny one though. In Kentucky, if a girl is found in a car with a male companion while wearing no shoes, the male companion can be charged with statutory (or is that word spelled with an "a?") rape.

so yeah, does anyone know?

I've told you repeatedly in the past to stop posting forwards. It'd be different if it's not something you do constantly. Most people here don't notice it, because I generally delete most of the posts you make on account of them being forwards and little more than spam.

This would've been deleted if I noticed it earlier (I'm out of town, so I haven't checked the boards daily). But, eh, too late so what can you do.

But still, stop posting forwards. KF

A barber is not to advertise prices in the State of Georgia.

So i just have to say that it really sucks having to go into a place and ask how much it costs to get a haircut! i had no idea it was a law... how odd... i spent $60 last month getting my haircut when i thought they only charged $25! It was a really nice cut though!! and yes i did tip!
