None of the above, and

That's why I make HUGE money!

There was a story I heard on the news not long ago. I forget all the details, but it had something to do with the Ontario Provincial Police. I have to admit, it was funny when they abbreviated Ontario Provincial Police as OPP. :)

OK OK, it all seriousness, I run my own business, my primary marketplace is eBay.
No, I like women.
