6 truths of life....(kind of harsh, but in good humor and funny. Enjoy.

1. You cannot touch all your teeth with your tongue.

2. All idiots, after reading the first truth, will try it.

3. And discover that the first truth is a lie. 

4. You're smiling now cause your an idiot. 

5. You will soon forward this on to another idiot so you're not alone. 

6. There's still a silly grin on your face.  I apologize, I'm an idiot too. I just needed the company!
