    Let’s not be taken in by this piece of ‘fool’s gold’ sculpted from ‘a fool’ that with relative recent repute has to be regarded as dross in dress, in demeanour, in anti-desire which requires only a side glance upon the contorted; already tarnished cerebral brassy-ness of it; imparts immediate distaste to high degree when her pouting face is seen in competition with her horrible thrusting vulva. –

    Did she really model tackily like that in clay delved from some disgusting dank, smelly English sod?

    Did they imagine we would be beguiled by a c-u-n-t cast in overrated gold?
