Not even close

Calling all decoder ring owners

After refuting the devil’s lie just a couple of weeks ago that NewSpring is just out for your money, I don’t know if this tweet is self parody or just his latest iwanna urge: I think I want a jeep…or either a really fast sports car…can’t decide! Paper or plastic. Fries or rings. Credit or ...
