    BTW, a retarded baboon would know better than to send such a tweet when embroiled in lawsuits.
     
  7. The Woodshed is not denying any responsibility to the above mentioned story, nor is it not denying that Alki David is a miniature endowed greasy cocksucker ! Alki David needs to go to prison, hopefully a Greek one !
