Indeed they are real. A casual googling of the word "unicorn" brings irrefutable evidence such as this.

I know--when I saw that on his page I was wondering if it had truly been a consistent problem in the past or if he was just taking a (...uh...much needed?) precaution.

No. It's actually the ring. As soon as you slip the wedding ring onto her finger, you cut off the blood supply to the genitals.

Yes, it's true. The American Film Institute released a documentary about him, titled I Know Who You Did Last Summer.

It used to be true. However, the guy has now retired to Florida and spends his time fishing.

Comment: I recall hearing a rumor many years ago about the anatomy of
asian women vs "white" woman. The story goes that asian women are better
in bed and "tighter" because they have a set of muscles (in their female
anatomy) that their european counterparts do not have. I would like to
know if there is any validity to this claim or just the pubescent musings
of horny boys.

Comment: Naked in Buenos Aires

_____________________________
But what about Jenna and Barbara? Don't the party-circuit antics of
America's First Children send the wrong message? How do you think the
troops and their families regard the president's children when they
read about them running naked down the hallway of a ritzy hotel in
Buenos Aires?

What surprises me is that Jenna and Barbara haven't done some token
charity work just to offset their reputation as ditzy debutantes. I
mean, how hard could it be to spend a few hours at a veteran's ward in
front of television cameras? I guess it would be too great of a
security risk.

And I thought the goofy "Do Asian women really have sideways vaginas?" question people ask here was bizarre enough.

Quite easily, as a matter of fact. Send us $5000.00 in unmarked currency and a copy of the scam letter you received, and we'll take care of it for you.

Bassist you are one funny dude. That made my day. And if you give me half of that $5,000 I'll see that you get out on parole early for good behavior. hee hee
