Poochie Cures Cancer HD: I’ll Teleport You In

Far away in a lighthouse far away sat a mysterious woman with a robotic combo over jet balck, her stark eyes staring at a bajillion television screens, “The One.” Across the screens flitted a green speck and a brown spack, “Close in please… closer… closer… not so irrationally fast!”

Materially, he would be shunned by the producers, by the selfish man for his second-handedness. His dishonesty would eventually ruin him.
