Pickle Bucket * CELEB PICK
Pickle Bucket (00:00)
Adam Newman

I’ve been a big advocate of pickle bucket safety for a long time, so you can imagine how happy I was when I first saw Adam’s bit. He’s become a big hero to all of us in the movement.

Beautiful LA girls * CELEB PICK

God's Pottery

This “Christian music duo” should tour with Palin during the 2012 election. Just like Palin, it’s impossible to hear their message of abstinence without laughing.
