    off topic ... slightly

    I like that ... lol ... crazy ... it's like it's still deciding wether to be a plant or horsefish

    ...I tel you what though, the most disgusting thing that I've ever seen is a cross between a spider and scorpion ... it was crab-like (reminding you of food) as well as pink and hairy ... plump and eight-legged ... sickening ... :yuck:
