Sure, you'll be pretty sore down there for a little while, but I don't think a full replacement is necessary.

Do you like celebrating your birthday?

Does it take a village? Or MYOB?




Yeah, it takes an entire village to properly celebrate my birthday. I follow the Bilbo Baggins model.



What do you do to cheer yourself up?

When the apocolypse comes, I'm raising skunks




Whatever works for you, man.
