Given Trabby has been in a, er, “stable” relationship for more than five minutes, it’s time for them to get married.

We have gathered […]

March 24, 2014 by


Last time we left out intrepid heroes, [Matthew says: More like insipid heroes! Ohhh! Sorry. As you were saying] Abby was upset because Travis had lured her away from a platonic date with Blando under false pretenses.
