This is so Guatamala. They put hard boiled eggs in everything down there because you know chicken is so important to them. Its their only real currency. A woman is said to be worth her weight in hens and a man’s wealth is measured by the size of his cock. Will you excuse me?

Your money’s on the dresser, Chocolate.
[discussing abortion] Oh, I know what you’re going to say. ‘If you kill the mother, the fetus dies too.’ But the fetus is going to be aborted anyway, so why not let it go down with the ship?
