Throwing Shade #62: Heat Waves and Masturbating Tattoos

| 0 comments

Shade? Yes, please! Because heat wave! Erin went to the pool to cool off (legs in the pool, honey) and saw some sweet man-nips and a super-classy masturbation tattoo. And in this week’s ‘ssues, Bryan pulls the linen pants off romance author Nicholas Sparks and exposes his lily white private school for white kids. Plus, instead of spending money on healthcare, Alabama’s hiring lawyers to represent fetuses. Bryan’s solution: steak au poivre!
