Just look at what real men who happen to be council members in Merriam KS do to help their people, showing some real initiative, they care. What would killa shitty clowncil members do? Absolutely nothing.

Guess Whiney White Chick/Nasal Nerd Music is more his taste, probably along with the one and only (c)Rap Song, with all its endless covers du jour, two chords, ThumpThump one note bass line and whatever the "lyrics" are today.
