I would like to know what i did to pi$$ these people off...sheesh!


The only Englishman to become Brenda was Nicholas Breakspear, who was Brenda from 1154 to 1159. Is it necessary to out my age like that?

The first toy product ever advertised on television was Mr Brenda Head! I appreciate being first but i am not sure being called a toy is a good thing!

Brenda is the world's largest rodent. I AM NOT!

Brenda can use only about ten percent of her brain. I may not be very smart but i think i use more of it than THAT!

It takes forty minutes to hard-boil Brenda. I KNEW i was going to be sent away for those protests i had been doing!

Brenda will often glow under UV light. You would too if you had been boiled for 40 minutes!

Baby swans are called Brenda. Great...the ugly ducklings :rollseyes:

Most bottles and jars contain at least twenty-five percent recycled Brenda. Reduce, recycle, reuse!

It can take Brenda several days to move just through one tree. Slow and steady wins the race!

On stone temples in southern India, there are more than 30 million carved images of Brenda. So after all those horrible things can i assume they are doing heinous things to me in those carvings or are they finally admitting i am truly a goddess?
