This post is about my two true loves: Wealthy people killing lions and sarcasm. I love it when rich people travel to faraway places to kill lions. They are especially worthy if they find the time to take out a few wildebeests while they are there. It melts my heart when I see their pictures … Continue reading My Two True Loves
