I’m reminded of that one time, while on the till at a music store no longer with us, someone tried to pay for a single CD with a €500 note. Only time I’ve ever seen one in the wild https://t.co/ykvHaInaTt #tweet


I support the notion of our elected representatives not being such lickspittles to the security apparatus of this country https://t.co/IeKRLPcPsJ #tweet

Watching the 205 Live with Wale on commentary and can he be a regular guest please? #tweet

Okada matches always remind me of what Gorilla Monsoon used to say about Greg Valentine #tweet
