Your post got a chuckle out of me! The best solution is to be born with a silver spoon in the mouth, or marry a rich person!

:rotfl: Ok... I thought it was funny.

I just had to edit this to add that I work in corrections, so I totally see the humor in this.

I thought it was funny, Thanks. Some people just can't take a joke.

Most people who are in jail and I do emphasize "most" not "all" people that are in jail because they belong there and I do not feel sorry for them. They cost us alot of money to keep their butts fed, educated and healthy. They are doing much better than many of our homeless and that's really shameful.

I think a week or so at Camp Cupcake might be a nice break. :rotfl:
