Hank, they want you to know what those mean when they use them to insult you. I used to have a list of them we used in chatrooms- they save time and aggravation for fat fingers on small keys too.

His AT&T Stadium (Cowboys, concerts, etc.) does well -over $20 mil a year in alcohol sales - and that's your only choice -
Because it's 9 bucks for a regular-sized beer!
