You ain't just whistling Dixie.

So glad he came to his senses and lowered himself to accept the money.

All I know is if I looked like that I could own the world ... with or without the money!

I think an upgrade is in order.

Mr. Garland deserves to get bumped up to "Handsome Rakes," surely. I mean, 1918 or 2018, the man is a certifiable hottie.

All those in favor, say "AYE."
