I got tagged again only someone has called it a Meme. I don’t know what the hell that is but it sounds like the noise someone that had just regained their sense of smell after being subjected to mustard gas would make the first time they walked by a bakery……memememem. Well what ever it is it means I got tagged which used to be a game we played in school when the teacher did not want us around anymore. Now I think it is something that some cyber thief invented to distract us while they attack our computers.

In any event, here we go:
