  1. Omigosh! I’m way over 5!!!

    Doc…Doc…tell me how long I have to live…

    Oh…it’s just an addiction and I won’t die from it.

    If I haven’t really told my wife about Revver does that qualify as cheating? I tried to tell her once but the link didn’t work at her work PC.

  2. So funny. I especially love #4. That’s why kids are such perfect agreeable “victims”.

  3. 10, 8, 4 and probably heading towards 1

    That ability to know who is camera friendly is a bit uncanny.

    on a side note, i sent a request to Booyah Networks for more information. i’ll let you know what I get back. they came up in a CNN newsletter I get by Bambi Francisco
