    Oil is too valuable for such an empty head. They should have put on some cow piss mixed with chicken manure instead.

    Only the politically bankrupt who have done nothing to the public engage and make photo opportunism of religion and race.

    No oil will work on this thick head ! Bit of grease may may possibly have some light effect.
