Self driving illegal immigrants.

We are undocumented immigrants not illegal immigrants. No human being is "illegal."

You aren't undocumented.  I've seen your photo in the Post Office.

They are immigrants, who crossed the border illegally, because the didn't have documents with them to identify themselves.

Personally, I go with undocumented workers because, whether their stay is permanent or temporary, a big chunk of CA economy depends on them (esp. as field workers because Mexican workers are literally the only people willing to do that thankless job).  But in an effort to be fair, I acknowledge that those using "illegal immigrant" are saying that it's the immigration that's illegal, not the immigrant's humanity.

Their legal status is ill?

Are you talking about that old FBI's Most Wanted Mugshot that they have of me with the fingerprints and everything?  >:(
I don't know why they are so upset.

I just had a little Plutonium for recreational use.
I don't know why they made a big deal out of it.

Urban Dictionary
mascot: A mascot is a teammate who is utterly useless, and is just around as fodder or moral support.

Urban Dictionary
fodder: One who's sole existence is to absorb projectiles.




No, thank you. >:(

That's not what a mascot is! A mascot is like the leprechaun on the lucky charms box or a guy dressed as a sports team's animal. Nobody is going to be hurling things at you.

Why did you even look at urban dictionary for that lol

If I created a temple for Dionysus--bless his plump Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, I'm sure Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton would be one of our favorite "church songs."  :dance1:

Would Hymn UB40 resonate through the hallowed halls as well?
