  • Just don’t leave your pictures from the BCC photo booth on their wall of photos. Because it may end up on my fridge.

  • This is a super cute and really great list…until pole dancing. Nothing against pole dancing – it’s just super not cute.

    • I think they were talking about Polish people, voted Cutest People West of the Ural Mountains ’95 and ’97.
