Went to the local auction house last night. Picked these up.

Is $7.50 for all of these good?

LOL! Very well done. It’s great when your time standing around at an auction pays off.

$7.50. That deserves a big “you suck”!

But these things have some additive in them that makes them very addicting. Much worse than cigarettes!
