    I didn’t realize that zeebas had fingers. I always thought they had hooves. You learn something new every day…

    Looks like they had a very jarring conversation and she gave him the finger, right in the eye!

    This is why I don’t do marriage. They usually end in divorce or misery.

    Larry not only lifted a finger but he lifted all of his own fingers when he lifted the preserved zeeba finger.

    Here’s a fun science fact… ZEBRAS DO NOT HAVE FINGERS!! You got scammed, bro! Your wife is right to beat you up for that! Man, I knew Larry was dumb, but I didn’t think he would be THIS gullible!

    Larry doesn’t hunt, doesn’t work, does nothing around the house, and is still given regular meals and enough money to hoist a few at his local.

    What on earth is he complaining about?

    I miss the days when Larry and the Crocs would try, and comedically fail, to catch Zebra. Always made good entertainment.

    I went on the hunt for donuts late last night. Scored 3. But didn’t put any in formaldehyde; I much prefer mine with milk.
