Mucho Fun-o

Pretty entertaining on its own but especially if your interested in exploring some of the gray areas of Christianity. Only suggestion is to avoid inviting that douche named Ryan back - Other than that grrrrreat.

I love mushrooms but

that Gross guy whew he’s amped up and then jumps off the deep in!
