    all the other "framily" members are humans, if some of them were other critters it would at least make some kind of sense

    Aparently Softbank own 70% of Sprint, they ran a series of commercial in Japan, they include a dog as the father ----

    it's confusing. i hope he made a good pay day.

    it's a long fall from near the top of the pile.

    maybe howie will have him on to esplain it.

    i forget if they are buds or enemies at the moment.

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Came across a Gene Simmons roast right in the middle of Dice's stint at the podium. Dice is not funny at all.
