Glad You Asked: St. Paddy's Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, After hearing the news that militarized killer dolphins with guns mounted on their heads are on the loose in the Black Sea, I would like to remind everyone it is their God-given right to own a gun. In no way, should dolphins' rights to bear arms on their heads be taken away from them. ---Anything happening today that won't infringe on a dolphin's head-gun rights? Wayne LaPierre, NRA Vice President
