PAIN AND GAIN

Poffy The Cucumber

Get Rich or Die Lifting.

Poffy The Cucumber

HAROLD AND KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY

Poffy The Cucumber

Laffing it up lamely, while the world bleeds shamely… In HAROLD AND KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY, Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn), are mistaken for “terrorists” on a plane to Amsterdam, and are thrown into Guantanamo Bay prison facility, without any trial, legal counsel or investigation. Just the way the criminal Bush Klan like it. Whereas the first … Read More
