(Unless YOU are a B40, in which case, today, yes, you can have everything. Don’t worry, I’m sure it will be my turn to have whatever once again sometime next week.)

The guy would have to be in eco-friendly velvet knickers, which is a terrible impediment to romance however an accelerator of screwballitude, for sure.)
