Toon 4 You

(Dork Tower) I wonder why the hate on Guy Fieri in the cartoon. I’ve heard a few people say they think he’s a douchebag, but no one has explained what he’s said or done to make him douchey.

It’s YOUR fault he killed himself

Rep. Don Young, a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives, was invited to speak to students at a Wasilla, Alaska high school yesterday.
