Hardy-har-har.

I’m pretty much known in my family (maiden home included) for being the one all about cracking up. What do I mean? I seek for and thoroughly enjoy funny things, events, comments, memes, video clips, you name it. If it’s funny, I’ve got to see it. And when I laugh, it’s from the depth of…Read more Hardy-har-har.
