  • BILLY DEC!!!!

  • Lets not forget that Ernie Reyes was the sidekick to Buck Rogers or the guy who played Buck Rogers in the short lived show Sidekicks. It was 3 Ninjas before there was a 3 Ninjas.

  • Are you trying to tell me that Enrique is better known for his music than for his giant mole?

  • In reply to outoftownie:

    Well...I feel like he is trying to move past it, so in Filipino solidarity I chose not to mention the mole. But you're right--he's just not the same without it.

  • In reply to cmanning:

    You can run, you can hide, but you can't escape my mole.

    Manny Pacquiao - The world's best Boxer, beter than "ALI"
