    Big fan of the skook I should so say. Living here is so great I decided I’m gonna change things up on Facebook. instead of posting row home fire pics I’m going with 150 pics showing my vacation from the skook On a polluted jersey beach.

    I’m surprised these folks in the skook can even get home insurance. Whenever one home catches on fire it takes five more with it. Rowhomes are dangerous, mmmkay?

      Can the heat from those sexy drag shows in girardville cause the Goodwill Fire Co. 43 to respond? Those boys are straight fire and the drag scene in Guntown is HOT HOT HOT!!!
