Hey Furious,
If you want us to take you seriously, you need to put a little more thought into these things:

you have snorted while laughing


you have been to Canada


Mr Furious said...

Don't know why I missed the Canada one...and the laughing? I know I have an out-of control (at times) laugh, but I don't think I snort...

>>>>I have fired a gun.

I wonder if they meant THE gun.
