Good choice, I personally would have went with a French apple pie. But hey, cherry is the next best kind, amirite? What’s with the pyramid pie crust though? Is that an Illuminati pie? Is it full of brain-washing serum and microscopic tracking chips? It’s OK… Even if it is Illuminati mind control pie I would still eat it cuz it’s a pie, dummy.

I’m not a sissy. I’m brutal, I have a beard & chest hair, when I smile it’s because someone hurt themselves and when I throw a finless brown in the pond I prefer the toilet seat to be cold. […]
