Posted by Cap on August 6, 2013

tfc 300You could use some extra cash right?  Sick of those ramen noodles, student loans running out?  You’re open to loaning out your body for some experiments, right? Nice.  Lend us your ears and The Fake Congregation will test your fortitude with palindromes! You know, those words that run forwards and back the same way.
