Ears and other body parts

Since John Mayer said that his penis is a Nazi, my ear became “Anti-Mayer”. Instead of getting his latest CD, I downloaded Colbie Caillat’s instead. It’s like listening to early Mayer without all the drama that comes with him. I highly recommend her music for those former Mayer fans.
