  • After looking at the V-Week 2017 schedule, I think a call needs to be made to Amnesty International. Being forced to listen to Nurse Nancy for that many hours has got to be in violation of the Geneva Convention – and a whole bunch of other international treaties.

    Maybe Trump should shut down Gitmo – and transfer the remaining prisoners to Silver Bay. Screw waterboarding! All those guys will tell everything they know before Day 5!

  • I could get up for a good old fashion game of capture the flag! Hopefully, I’d be on V’s team. Blinding speed is helpful when flag capturing.

    I love pizza, but that would probably end after getting force fed it for so many days.

    I’m guessing some sweet games of volleyball will be going on on the beach. Maybe if everyone is lucky, Keith will rip that stained & stinky t-shirt off and everyone can be mesmorized by his hairy man boobs. Is it possible to still be Alpha when your body is testosterone deficient & so full of estrogen you need a bra? I guess, all you need is hypnosis to be Alpha. But I digress…

    As usual, poor Prefect seems to be the one doing all the real work. Maybe she won’t need to beg as much for funds after producing so much value for all the lucky attendees.

    I’d keep my lady away from the dances…and probably in a different zip code…

    • I guess it is irony that VanDouche is a pudgy little guy with man-boobs who starves his women and possibly has a higher estrogen content than them. Do the women find it weird that his boobs bounce up and down along with theirs during sex – assuming the women still have them, having been so starved?
