    I don't like bobcat's blonde jokes. So I just highlight and delete them on the screen. Now I've got white-out all over my screen hiding important information as I scroll up and down.

    @Alan Harper, if that is in fact your real name that you are a fool just in case you are uncertain about how the Internet works. Bobcat, is a regular poster and his jokes bring a laugh to us every day. By the way he is male, so see you NOT.

    Lol, really. @chrissy, I saw where @Scottish Mama said she was blonde. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the jokes. I don't think either of the family blabbermouths talked hair color, so I am going to be quiet on that topic;-).<3
