LoZZZer will be in NY on 09/14

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Bruto Blukowski, Sep 5, 2006.

  1. I hope that you are able to break free during the evening Z and post on ET about how you put the people from "Queers for Economic Justice" in stitches with your great joke telling.

    Have fun with the party favors.
