What the hell are you all staring at? [1]


Pinball Hall of Fame
1610 E. Tropicana Ave., 434-9746

Three kilos of pure dirt. [2]

I don’t want to know what’s in there. [3]

A shrunken head! [4]

Ah, camel poo. [5]

This is not normal. [6]

We gotta save the children. [7]

Get your hands off me—all four of them. [8]

I am the king of pain. Welcome to my kingdom. [9]

I can take you. I may be short, but I’m mean. [10]

Oh no, super fart bumpers! [11]

This is the only person I’ve witnessed pick his nose and masturbate at the same time. [12]

But no one can see this news program so it doesn’t matter what we say. [13]

We are not amused. [14]
