as if the lines between classes in america weren’t becoming obvious enough as it is, now we’re adding ink

I wanted to poke fun at this, and ask what body part you’d be willing to have “MarkMaynard.com” tattooed on, but I can’t bring myself to do it. It’s just too pathetically sad. (I’m still hoping that it’s a joke.) This woman, who agreed to have “GoldenPalace.com” tattooed on her forehead, only got $10,000 for it, and she did it not for a plasma TV or an SUV, but so that she could afford to send her son to private school… One day, I suspect, half of us will have made such deals… It makes me want to weep.

    “Mark Maynard’s site sucks me.” And you’ll just have to guess where I’d put it.

    It’s not a joke. I would hate to be her son. Imagine the pressure. “Look what I did for you! LOOK!” Ugh.

    Christ…. she looks to be about thirty years old. In five years, her son will be flipping burgers to pay his mother back that ten grand for his proper schoolin’…. after he graduates, they’ll never speak to each other again. What a freakin’ mistake….

    As much as I’d like to say that my cock could accommodate the phrase “Mark Maynard’s site sucks me,” it’s just not the case. Therefore, I cannot be Tony Buttons. It’s simple logic, John…

    I was just sitting here thinking that if there’s not a “no headband” clause in the contract she might actually come out of this alright.

    Thank you for saying so, Mark. I don’t like to brag, but the font could actually be quite large as well.

    With a little less puncuation, Laura, your comment becomes rather vulgar. I had to reread it twice to make sure I understood what you meant.
