Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

House - TV Shows
This show hasn't boned. Hasn't even come close. The big thing to remember is that the show revolves solely around House, and thus, the rest of the characters (with the exception of Wilson and Cuddy) and come and go, and it will make no difference. I still watch this show and the new episodes seem just as fresh as the old ones. -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on February 18, 2010, 9:32 am

Our Gang / Little Rascals - Movie Series
It had some good moments and did help launch some lifelong careers (e.g. Nanette Fabray and Robert Blake[!]). Still, by the time the series came to an end, it definitely had seen better days ( i.e. it wasn't good that Froggy was the ONLY interesting kid left)- and quite a few alums had trainwreck lives thereafter! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 18, 2010, 9:28 am

Office, The - TV Shows
I voted for "never boned", as I must commend the writers for how they have managed to keep the show fresh; first with Michael leaving Dunder Mifflin, then with the Sabre takeover. However, the Jim and Pam marriage stole a lot of the show's thunder, and that is making me think that it will be all tired out after next season. The newfound romance between Andy and Erin is they trying to bring back the magic between Jim and Pam, and is a clear indicator that they are running out of ideas. -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on February 18, 2010, 9:24 am

Saved by the Bell - TV Shows
This show is a guilty pleasure of mine. Even though it is cheesy and unrealistic and none of the people can act, the happy early-90s atmosphere sucks me in and allows me to forget about how screwed up high school actually is. As per if it jumped, I say that the franchise should have ended when they all graduated. However, that can't be held too much against this show in particular, because at least they canned it and made a spin off series for when the characters go to college. I think the closest this show came to boning is when Kelly and Jessie mysteriously disappeared and Tori Scott comes to replace them; she subsequently disappears after a few episodes and Kelly and Jessie are back as if nothing ever happened. Fans of the show know this as the "Tori Paradox". My vote goes to "never boned", although I submitted the Tori Paradox to be added the the poll. -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on February 18, 2010, 9:19 am

Tori Amos - Music Groups
I will agree that Scarlet's Walk was her last great album, and her 90s stuff was much better. I can listen to her 90s albums straight through and marvel at their originality and the talent of the artist. Her newer stuff has some good moments, but I never find myself listening straight through anymore, I just pick through the good songs and throw out the filler. That being said though, she is still a hell of a lot better than the commercial, manufactured, rap-based crap that clogs up the charts and the radio these days. -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on February 18, 2010, 9:12 am

American Idol - TV Shows
I say the show jumped when Taylor Hicks won; it opened the floodgates for talentless hacks like Sanjaya and Jason Castro to take over the show. It also proved that talent doesn't matter at all when choosing a winner, all you have to do is compile a large, militant and stupid fanbase to vote for you. Ellen is just the final nail in the coffin; this show was dead long before she showed up. -- Submitted By: (Runfromcheney) on February 18, 2010, 9:09 am

Even though I love the show "Life After People", why is that on The History Channel? It should be on Discovery. "Ice Road Truckers"? Really? How is that "historical"?

Mighty Orbots - TV Shows
This was an incredible show from the 80's- it got sabotaged by two things. 1- No Toy tie ins-, the lack of extra $$ to be made in a toy marketing TV era made it less desirable to be on TV. 2- the GO BOTS's parent company sued them for copyight violation since ORBOT was in their view close to GO-Bot. Even though they had NOTHING in common (even the name!?) and GOBOTS sucked the Fish bone hard- this well made high quality well written show died a quick 13 episode death- thank god for DVD- never boned. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 18, 2010, 7:06 am

Our Gang / Little Rascals - Movie Series
I recall an episode of this where the kids were babysiiters and they glued a small child to the floor of a bird cage by applying a nasty black adhesive to the child's diaper. While funny - the image to this day is disturbing. But Buckwheat and Alfalfa are just classics that can never bone- O-Tay!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 18, 2010, 6:28 am

BoneTheFish.com - Websites
I saw that we just got a new reason for Boning as "everything is turning into republican vs. democrat" BTF has tried to allow as many possible topics to be put on the site from Celebrities, TV Shows, Movie Series, Websites and Random Topics. Some of those are political (Obama, Bush etc.) and thus it encourages some sort of partisan argument. Also, some shows and or movies- Simpsons and Family guy come to mind- have made it a point (for better or worse) to become political, thus it is fair to say a political argument can come out of them as shows or media. As far as Bone the Fish goes, all non-spam commentary from any user of any political stripe is approved and put on the site, and no users are turned away or censored for their opinions. Also, I could buy into this topic if people were trying to put a political spin on something like "Leave it to Beaver" but I'm not seeing that. The political fights are here, but they seem to be in the proper place where it makes sense to have them. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 18, 2010, 5:41 am

McDonalds - Random Topics
I think there are two main reasons why so many people go to McDonalds. One, it's comfort food for a lot of people. The taste may not be wonderful but I think it's still good. There's this sort of familiarity about it that's well, comfortable. Two, it's convenient. If you work late for example, on the way home, it's often a lot easier to stop at McDonalds then it is to make something. Why go through the hassle of cooking something and dealing with the dishes when you can stop off at McDonalds on the way home? In the same way that as long as stores have aisles full of sugary and/or salty snacks, people will buy and consume those snacks because they're good and convenient. Yes, McDonalds is unhealthy but that convenience and comfort food aspect can be difficult to resist. The bottom line is that people are not going to start eating healthy en-masse on their own. Maybe there's a way McDonalds can make their food healthier without sacrificing taste, I don't know. Having said all of that, I agree they should bring back the McDLT. I barley remember it, but I remember it being great. I didn't mind the Arch Deluxe when it was out. However, I agree that the 'this burger is for adults' campaign was a bad idea. If they were to bring it back but maybe did a 'the burger for adults but kids love it too' or something, things could be different. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on February 17, 2010, 2:22 pm

Lassie (1954) - TV Shows
First, about the explanation here: It's at least misdirecting, because it sounds like the show was the original which inspired movies aso. It was the other way around. Lassie was a novel, which was made into a movie, where other movies followed and from which the shows was made. And IMHO, the TV series suffered the same problem nearly all the shows which spin off a movie have: It lacked in creativity. "Lassy Come Home" may have been to "sweet" for it own good, but it also showed quite nicely the contrasts in the amirican society during the depression. Also "Courage of Lassie" was an interesting parabel on the suffering of the american soldiers. The TV Show (and subsequent movies and TV-Shos) was simple family entertainment, which reduced the idea of Lassie to something overly sweet and (to be frank) overly stupid. I think, like other shows (Flipper, Black Beauty aso) it somehow fit into the spirit of the time, and it garantees some sort of "whole word" to flee in from the problem of real life, but in the end, it's a boring concept which surely wasn't interesting enough to really fill up so many episodes. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on February 17, 2010, 10:30 am

My only Beef is that only 5 % of its Episodes are available for purchase on DVD. For many years I thought there were three differant versions of this show. (I began watching it as a child in the mid-1960s during the "Ranger Years") The other two "Versions" were shown (as Reruns) under the titles "Jeff's Collie" and "Timmy and Lassie" The Stations in my area NEVER SHOWED Episodes from Season 4 (Where Jeff transfers ownership to Timmy) or Season 11 (Where Timmy's Family moves to Australia and Lassie ends up with the Rangers).

Star Trek: Voyager - TV Shows
I remember reading a comment about Voyager that referred to it as comfort food. That is what made Voyager both good and yet terrible at the same time. Voyager was the sort of series where (in general) each episode had stuff happen and it would end with everything back to normal and no real lasting consequences for the main characters. You more or less knew what you were getting. I think that's where the comfort food aspect comes in. There was nothing really groundbreaking. You could however, watch an episode knowing you'd get a nice little adventure. Sometimes it was fun, sometimes not so fun but it was an adventure nonetheless. Yes, there were redshirt deaths. I know people didn't like it as let's face it, they left family and lives behind and they're people too (well okay, it's just a TV show but you know what I mean). Yes, there was some disturbing stuff but that and the redshirt deaths were more common in the earlier seasons then the later. Even then, there was often little to no worry of such a fate befalling a main character. Even if something potentially life altering happening to a main character they'd be back to normal by the next episode. Oh sure, we'd occasionally have a very special episode where they gained significant ground in their journey, say a year or two or maybe even 10 or 20 years closer to home. Fortunately, they'd remember that fact afterward. That was where it was nice to see progress. There were some that wanted to see Voyager more serialized and more serious. I can understand this and I wonder what it would have been like had they used a more serious tone. It might have been interesting to see (for example) them gain technology and to use said technology in future episodes and for us to get a sense of progression and danger from their situation. We had some sense of danger in the early episodes and a sense of progressing with the jumps and I think that was interesting and showed potential. It might have been interesting to see what Janeway would have done had their ideals been insufficient when it came to survival. Seeing Janeway start off as the squeaky clean Captain that could quote the Federation rule book in her sleep and end up being much more hardened and even a bit cynical and willing to bend and outright ignore the rules if it meant their survival could have been an interesting study in just how far we're willing to go to live. Sort of just how far is too far when it comes to surviving? When does it get to the point where one needs to accept defeat because the cost of victory (whether to oneself or others) is too high? Seeing them in the situation where they might live, but at the cost of destroying everything worth living for and what they'd to could have been fascinating. Yes, it would have been more difficult to watch but it might have been for far better viewing. In the end, Voyager was indeed comfort food. Yes, it could have been a serious and deep series that made us ask serious questions about morality. Even though they didn't take that route (with a few episodes as exceptions), the episodes were usually watchable and at least a passable way to spend an hour. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on February 16, 2010, 12:12 am

SpongeBob SquarePants - TV Shows
Allow me to rephrase myself here. This show didn't bone/jump/nuke after the movie, IT SUCKED FROM DAY ONE!!! I already stated my piece about the uber-merchandising, the unnessecary celebrity guest-star plague, and how all the characters are uber-stereotyped, but now we get even MORE reasons. First off, the show OUTRAN RUGRATS!!! Seriously, go to Wikipedia and count how many cartoon got offed in this time (as well as how many merely in his wake)!!! Also, the show isn't really as original as you think. Where have we seen the whole dynamic duo plotline before? NUMEROUS TIMES IN ALMOST RAPID SUCCESSION? Finally, are you honestly telling me that a show with that sort of ploy, about a SPONGE, which you can get for 99 cents, is better than ANY AND ALL OTHER CARTOONS OUT THERE???

Ah, Histeria. What a great show. It called itself educational, even though it taught almost nothing about History, except the names of Historical figures, who wound up being merged with pop culture icons for a cheap skit or two. It had characters who were as annoying as Scrappy-Doo, Snarf, and the Smurflings combined, and more hideous than a Cabbage Patch doll after an unfortunate encounter with a Grizzly bear. It taught false "facts" about history, being even more inaccurate than a Wikipedia page that has been attacked by hordes of vandals and trolls overnight. In fact, some of the so-called "facts" were actually urban legends which have been debunked.

There were countless interesting REAL folks whose stories could have been depicted that would have been more interesting than this (e.g. there was a Japanese man who survived, went back home,wrote about it in a journal, but felt great SHAME the rest of his life for having lived while women and children had perished)!

Look at one episode from each season, and you'll see, what a difference, how great they were in the past and how ridiculous and idiotic they are now. Imagine a baby, growing into a smart kid, living to be 30, going senile at 35, living to be 100, going into a coma at 120, living past 200, and still in a coma, with Matt Groening/Fox refusing to pull the plug.

If I wanted to watch a show, I'd put it on a show channel. I want to see the weather, dammit! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:53 pm

Gangland - TV Shows
Gangland does not--in any way, shape, or form--belong on the History Channel. Why can't they have shows like this on channels where they really belong, like Crime TV? History Channel's been airing shows which have nothing to do with History, like Axe Men and Ice Road Truckers. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:50 pm

Nanny 911 - TV Shows
Parents, there is a little thing called "discipline". When your kids do something wrong, you punish them accordingly. You don't just sit there hoping the kids will never do anything bad ever again. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:44 pm

Super Nintendo - Random Topics
Sega slammed Nintendo for not having a 16-bit system when they advertised their Genesis. Nintendo fans were not amused, and it turned many of us off. A few years later, the Super Nintendo was released...and man, did it ROCK. Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, Mega Man, Mega Man X...stop me if I'm wrong! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:41 pm

Judge Judy - TV Shows
She's too nasty and biased. What's worse is that the current judge for People's Court, Marilyn Milian, acts just like her. So that's two shows boning for the price of one. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:24 pm

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - Random Topics
So they lose some constitution-editing lawyers, who will retaliate with lawsuits. The ACLU has more lawyers where that came from. They can just counter-sue them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:18 pm

Republican Party - Random Topics
Opposing expansion was baby steps; slavery was very important to people, especially the plantation owners, so the Republicans couldn't outright go, "OK, let's end slavery and give them equal treatment!" since they'd lose support for their cause. Eventually they sought to end it once and for all. If the reps boned, it sure as hell wasn't day one. I think both sides--Democrats and Republicans--need to start working together instead of letting extreme members run the show. I also heard that Obama wanted to be like Abraham Lincoln but changed his mind as soon as he found out he was a rep. Is this true? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 1:13 pm

Seth McFarlane - Celebrities
Seth's topic here has advertisements for Satanic jewelry. Seems even the google ads agree he's made a deal with the Dark Prince! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 9:31 am

Super Why! - TV Shows
I managed to catch a few episodes some time back. When you say bland and inoffensive, you're not kidding. Super Why and his friends have all the personality of wooden blocks. The character's "personalities" are all the same, and if they switched bodies a la Freaky Friday, the only way you could tell which character belongs in who's body is when they use their "superpowers" (spelling, teaching the alphabet, writing words, and reading are not superpowers). At least it teaches words, but it's repetitious, as you said, and most of each episode is filler after filler after filler. Give younger kids a little more credit than this. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 14, 2010, 9:01 am

Sopranos, The - TV Shows
So as I wrap season 2 on DVD I'm going to bring up the only other criticisms of the first two seasons- which is minor- the fact that Janice, and Meadow were not written off the show at this point- the writers had it set up for Meadow to go to Berkeley- effectively writing her off the show, except for maybe some small appearances, and Janice to disappear FOREVER with the Aprile killing, but nope Janice gets shoe horned back into the show- obstensibly because Nancy Marchand died, and they needed "that" character type on the show. Meadow who was also completely worthless and annoying to the viewers for pretty much the rest of the series, but we get her shoe horned back into the show as well. In retrospect as I re-watch it this was a major opportunity lost on the show to eliminate both of these characters. I will start season 3 soon. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 14, 2010, 5:21 am

Simpsons, The - TV Shows
Finding out that the woman (Nancy Cartwright) who does Bart's voice is a major $cientology donor and fundraiser was really about the 10th straw that broke the Fish's back for me in just starting to hate this show. It was great back when I was in the 7th grade, but good lord, has this undead monster over-stayed it's welcome. And now it turns out, the show is a big money maker for $cientology. At least South Park had the balls to make fun of the cult and drove brainwashed $cilon Isaac Hayes off the show- good riddance. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 14, 2010, 5:15 am

Nothing more than a hate mongering bullsh*t artist. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 13, 2010, 11:44 pm

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - Random Topics
True, but then again, these extremists in the ACLU seem to be lawyers. Kick them out, and I'm sure they can lawyer themselves up a nice little lawsuit. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on February 13, 2010, 11:41 pm

Family Affair (1966) - TV Shows

Tyler Perry's House of Payne - TV Shows
How in the world does this unfunny guy with his unfunny characters get these giant contracts to produce this garbage. Both of the Tyler Perry shows currently on the air suck ass. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 13, 2010, 10:57 pm

So Pelirojo, I'm not the only one who has actullay seen this show. I only comment on things that I know about. I agree with your statement completely. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 13, 2010, 10:53 pm

Mentalist, The - TV Shows
It BTF this week when Cho turned Rambo on his old gang members and faked shooting a suspect. Completely out of character and unbelieveable. -- Submitted By: (vx900) on February 13, 2010, 9:39 pm

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
Yuan, of course it must be a vast conspiracy to cover up the great job Obama has done with the economy, how else could the incredible job that he has done been hidden from people so well out on the street, and statistically from Gallup, Wall Street Journal etc. In fact it has been hidden so well by the conspiracy, that the great effect has been completely hidden indeed, we are getting change, it's just been a change for the worse, we can hope 2012 comes as fast as possible! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 13, 2010, 3:35 pm

Car 54, Where Are You? - TV Shows
flech, Agree about Fred Gwynne being good (remember 'YOOTS?!' from "My Cousin Vinny"), but the whole cast was awesome with Al Lewis (pre-Grandpa) playing Officer Schnauzer and Charlotte Rae playing Mrs. Scnnauzer(!) and Nipsey Russell shining. Also, this was the show to see some really funny cameos of some Borscht Belt faves like Molly Picon playing the irrepresible conniving Mrs. Bronson! Of course, Gwynne playing the lowkey yet occasionally high-strung Muldoon who had to deal with his always hyper cop car partner Gunther Toody (played by, Joe E. Ross) was classic! Of course, I used to wonder why they never had Joe E. Ross on "The Munsters" even doing a cameo. But then many years later, I knew someone who'd performed with him in regional theater and he said that he'd do that 'Ooh!OOH' sound onstage while playing an entirely different character which always brought a hearty laugh from the audience the very first time he'd do it in the show but he'd KEEP doing over and over again- oblivious to the ever more vocal groans and jeers from the audience and increasing annoyance of the rest of the cast- EVERY SINGLE SHOW! Maybe Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis had been 'Ooh! OOHED!' to death on this show and didn't want to chance any more on their own. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 3:21 pm

Mad Max - Movie Series
I actually liked the 3rd movie with Tina Turner-and more importantly liked the idea that civilization could arise again after annihilation even if the descendents didn't quite get the concepts of ancestral life (see Renaissance after Dark Ages!). Still, I think it was time to retire the series inasmuch as if civilization was being reived without Max (the ONE vestage of it in previous films), exactly what would his purpose have been? -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 3:00 pm

Beach Boys, The - Music Groups
Is it just me or does anyone else think they peaked with "Good Vibrations"? Yeah, it's tough to imagine what could have topped it but gotta love that theremin! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:53 pm

Baretta - TV Shows
Was the show great in its time? Yeah and I'm glad I got to see it when it came on! Do I want to now help support Blake who's had quite a few issues since the show went off the air including his wife's questionable homicide by buying it on DVD? Nope! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:50 pm

Maude (TV series) - TV Shows
Interesting point, fletch! I'd also like to point out that since Maude actually had a job for only one episode (ONE!), it seems her motives for having a maid were more to impress her rich neighbors and avoid 'demeaning' housework instead of out of necessity of not having the time to get to said housework due to being employed. And, before anyone jumps on me for this, I'd also like to ask why couldn't Walter or Carol have pitched in re the housework after work or why couldn't even Phillip had done so after school? All four members of that family were perfectly able-bodied (Carol more than others)! And for all her purported 'liberalism', Maude never seemed to consider it the slightest imposition to any of her maids to work on weekends or very late into the night! Never mind that she knew Florida had a family with young children (yeah, they were barely mentioned and NOT the same as in "Good Times" but they did exist) she had to commute back-and-forth from Harlem to the relatively remote New York suburb of Tuckahoe! Who was watching Florida's young kids on late weeknights and Saturdays while MAUDE had her work for her? I'll bet Maude never once thought of that but just thought that by trying to insist on Florida using the front door, she'd entirely done right by Florida and her family. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:37 pm

My Favorite Martian - TV Shows
Not a bad show, fletch, but I have to agree with the late Ray Walston's assessment that it would have been WAY better had the focus been on Martin as a fish out of water (or Martian out of saucer) coping with dumb Earth customs and protocols instead of them opting for the Martian 'magic' and trickery angle. I mean the early "Beverly Hillbillies" did that and their audience loved it instead of being offended so why not a Martian doing that?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:20 pm

Supremes, The - Music Groups
She had her demons and may not have been easy to work with, but I don't think they did right by Flo Ballard- or her kids! And if one hears one of her post-Supremes songs, one may be surprised at how similiar she sounded to Roberta Flack- of all people! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:15 pm

Sigmund and the Sea Monsters - TV Shows
Friedrich, That was one WARPED show! I never figured out if they planned to do anything with Sigmund other than keep him hiding out in their clubhouse for the rest of his life! How was THAT an improvement over dealing with bullying brothers and oblivious parents? It would be like tunneling out of a school and winding up in solitary confinement forever! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 13, 2010, 2:08 pm

Super Duper Sumos - TV Shows
Gotta love the stereotypes doled out by this show. Day one! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 13, 2010, 12:54 pm

Republican Party - Random Topics
As I write this, Day One is the number one reason. Even though people who read the comments section of this topic learn that the Republican Party was founded in part to end slavery, someone took it upon themselves to drive Day One to the top. Either we have ignorant voters, or there are actually people out there who think slavery should never have ended. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 13, 2010, 12:39 pm

Internet Surveys - Random Topics
Don't bother taking them. I decided to give one a try, mainly because it was an interesting subject. When I finished, it requested my name, address, email address, etc. before it would give me the result. Uh, no thanks! I closed the window. Another time, I tried another one survey, thinking "OK, maybe this one won't request my personal info." Wrong! I tried one more, this time thinking "Let me guess, you'll want my address, too?" Bingo! Apparently, most internet surveys are bound to pull this crap. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 13, 2010, 12:35 pm

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - Random Topics
Groups bone either because they were wrong to begin with, or they start out good and wind up hijacked by extremists who bend the mission to suit their twisted ideals. If this is the case with the ACLU, they should give the extremists the boot and fix the problem. So far, they continue to keep the extremists in their ranks, and by refusing to kick them out, they are not much better than the extremists are. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 13, 2010, 11:49 am

Gotta love Disney's Jedi Mind Tricks, as you so well put them. Disney, let US be the judge instead of telling us these sequels are instant classics! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 13, 2010, 11:46 am

Barack Obama II - Celebrities
So it's a success that things are not improving, but getting worse at a slower rate, this would sound like a good spin that failure is actually a success. Or something like the Emperor's New Clothes if you ask me. Also I cited several articles and surveys in my prior posts from the Small Business Owners of America, Gallup and Business week where the statistical pool feel that things are in fact getting worse, and a statistical sample of them are very down on the economy as a whole. Sounds like it jives with my "main street" and every observation I have been able to obtain from what I see out everyday. So everything I see, and all of the statistical evidence that backs this up must be a vast conspiracy of lies to cover up what a great job "Hope and Change" is doing for everyone. Of course, don't let the facts get in the way of your argument!! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 13, 2010, 11:40 am
