Back in the eighties i was flying back home to the U K and had a 20 hour stop over at Madrid Airport. Just to kill some time i decided to go to the bogs for a hand shandy and i don't mind telling you it was quite the most fantastic wank.The whole cubicle was like a plasterer's radio.Ever since then when ever i watch Real Madrid and Ronaldo is doing his flicks and tricks it reminds me that he hasn't always been the biggest wanker in Madrid.

Dumb Ass Bird · July 29, 2019 at 2:45 pm

I've been living in Madrid for 9 years now and I haven't gone to most of these places. Wow.
