Ask the Asshole: The Magic Eight Ball Answers!!!

By Mike Mumah in Features on April 17, 2007

Being that the only questions written in this week to the column were written by monosyllabic morons whose I.Q.s can apparently only be measured by the amount of drool they got on their S.A.T.s, I decided to put as much thought into answering them as they obviously spent asking them. I’m letting the Magic [...]
