    I will bet that this guy was worthless his whole life. The problem is that he’s a dime a dozen here in Chicago.

      Kinda like yo momma on her knees, a dime will get you a dozen?


      • Leroy Goldberg


        Why are you all such heartless, vile, disgusting creatures?

        That’s a rhetorical question though I’m sure there are many here that can provide a number of answers.
