" Trash Dolls "

Hi ALL...
Well I thought I heard / seen it all, but in 2days paper I jus read this...

Shock Trailer Trash Dolls that DRINK, BELCH and SWEAR are a massive hit in America. The fowl mouthed toys are pregnant and speak phrases like "Pour me a double, I'm drinking for two."
They boast peroxide blonde hair and rollers and have cigarettes dangling from their lips. One, the £18.50 trash talking "Turleen" says "If the trailers a-rockin', don't come a-knockin'." Another "Little Miss Guzzler" has a six-pack of beer.
Makers Arsenic & Apple say the eleven and a half inch low-life dolls are popular with both children and adults.
Boss Danielle Gibby, who has sold thousands said "It started as a bit of fun but we soon realised there was a big market. Its all about having a laugh at stereotypical American images."
There are no plans to sell the dolls here (in the UK).
......... Mmm....What NEXT, I ask Myself...( I wonder IF Wally-World will have any left, when we come over 4 our Vacation...LOL...Chris.....
It's NICE 2B Important...but it's more Important 2B NICE...Chris.....

That's funny, Chris. The website is:
They even got sum fer cheap cuz they fell off the turnip truck and got damaged.

May you camp where wind won’t hit you, where snakes won’t bite and bears won’t git you.

When I was a kid we played outside Cowboys and Indians. It was fun. Now they have gross new toys to play with doesn't sound like fun anymore. Their are many things I hate in this new world we live in. I do like to go camping in my old Airstream trailer.

10. You think roadkill is a food group
9. A twister took everything you had and
you still haven't left town
8. You've ever used the words "Christmas"
and "bologna" together
7. You or someone you know has seen Elvis
in person in the last 20 years
6. You are a Woman who owns hot pants or
a Man who owns cut-offs
5. You let your 12 year old daughter
smoke at the dinner table (in front of
her kids!)
4. When you got married, you kept the
same grandparents
3. Your senior prom had day care
2. Your Halloween pumpkin has more teeth
than you do
1. You have ever referred to your
significant other as cuz, sis or bro!

Of course there are other ways to tell if you might be trailer trash. They include:

Have you been married three times and still have the same in-laws?
Do you think that the last words to the Star Spangled Banner are “Gentlemen, start your engines.

Do you think that the word Iraq refers to a woman with large breasts.

Have you ever lit a match in your bathroom and your home exploded right off of its wheels?

Dear Chris,

You always have such interesting things to say. Have you thought about setting up your own personal blog?

If you do, be sure to let us know the address.
