Just Some Jizz From Jimmy Boy

“I’m trying to find the correct name for it … this utter absolute, asinine, idiotic stupidity of men marrying men. … I’ve never seen a man in my life I wanted to marry. And I’m gonna be blunt and plain; if one ever looks at me like that, I’m gonna kill him and tell God he died.” — Jimmy Swaggart.

Breast-Baring Considered Harmful

Hello and welcome to the default WordPress template! No need for panic – things will go back to normal once I manage to beat this monster into submission… Oh, and by the way, in case you’re wondering: as of now Hot Poop is published using WordPress instead of MovableType. More later!

gMail

Thanks to the powers that be, I now dispose of a gMail adress. Send mail to killuglyradio at gmail dot com. Weeeeee! God, I feel SO consumerist right now…
