Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, That's it, I'm asking for everybody's birth certificates! To be fair, I've requested a birth certificate from my own toupee -- to settle the debate from all those left-wing birthers who claim it looks like a Canadian fighting squirrel. Well, it isn't Canadian, damn it, it's Italian-American!--- Anything happening this weekend where I can check people's birth certificates? - Donald Trump

Donald, you should know that no matter how many times you prove the origin of your toupee, those left-wing radicals won't believe you. Even if the issue is irrelevant, the fat-cat liberals will just keep wasting everyone's time by bringing it up over and over again. It's too bad, really.
