As long as you can laugh at yourself you will never cease to be amused.

So why don’t I have any tattoos?

It’s not that I don’t like them. Nope, I love ‘em. I’ve always loved ‘em. I think they’re romantic, unreasonable, thoughtless and eternal all at the same time. Therefore, I love them.

It’s just that with tattoos, I treat them like pricey jewelry. If I ever get a desire to get one, I say to myself okay, take a year to think about it and if you still want it next year, go ahead and get it. One year, that’s short for something that will last a lifetime.

hmmmm....if flies could get tattoos...and had the same logic as humans, they would advise other younger flies to take about 10 minutes to think that over and if you still like it go for it. because 10 minutes is very short compared to a whole fly lifetime.

its also short compared to a human lifetime. so i say 10 minutes is long enough to think about getting a really sick tat of your best friends face on your chest when youre really drunk...right?

i'd say if you are going to get a tattoo of your best friend's face when you're really drunk, it would have to be on the butt.
