    "back to back world war champs"...came in late and act like we won the wars, we didn't, we just helped, almost lost to the Brits trying to claim independence and needed help from Spain and France, lost in Vietnam, requires help from other NATO partners to fight in the Middle East, bad performance in Iraq, etc etc. You wanna talk about "Back to back world war champs", look at Britain, they've never lost a war since Great Britain was officially created.

    Condoms were already a thing long before Ben Franklin's existence. They were just made of things like sheep skin and weren't very effective, the technology to produce polymers like plastic and latex didn't exist back then. And as you said, Benny Frank keeps it wet. Lol
