WTF are you on about Abdul? Are you drinking again? Just explain and keep the ironic subtlety to a minimum, or else.

I know which commenter is you. "Good Soldier Schweik" ;)

Funny fact: the World Cup trophy isn't a cup. (Maybe it's just me.)

"cup" meaning that one of those "chicks" is a guy and is wearing a cup?

I'm telling you Abdul, I have about had it with you.

So you don't like ironic subtlety any more?

Did you get a lobotomy to fit in better with your new neighbors?

Sorry ed, no trans women on that team.

I know you are very concerned with that issue, so why not write them a nasty letter demanding to know why not.

Or better yet (this is the 2019 after all) take to Twitter and organize a boycott. :P

Does "2 girls 1 cup" mean anything to you or did that particular internet meme escape your attention? :P

Wrong thread.

The one you are looking for is Eat at Moe's.

ed has been staring into the void too much.

When I say the void I mean Lake Myakka.

Sorry, ed. I probably should have explained the reference to save you the trouble of finding out for yourself.
