    • drax

      Yeah, that movie involved a 100-year-old guy with a shotgun too.

          I was making fun of Clint Eastwood, not your comment.

      • Captain_Obvious

        his joke was funny, your condescending comment was not.

  • Dinglenug

    Aw, nothing to worry about – just a routine little disagreement at the Kalashnikev house. Gramps probably just forgot where he buried the ammo again.

    • KalashniKEV

      It don’t go down like that in the KalashniKEV house.
