Mixed Nuts (Part I) Reblog

Aah Family! … Sometimes you have to be there to believe it!!

1.Has a monogrammed straight jacket and standing reservation on mental ward.

2.Family is likely to move away without leaving forwarding address. Has jail time in the past or the future

6.Good fellow. Almost everybody likes him or her…
