  1. I think the festival is a wonderful idea but someone has to put this young man on the zone diet plan. Hon. Charles Maynard looks FAT! My Lord. Come on. Take better care of your health Mr. minister. He really looks like the dough boy. Someone needs to poke him with their index finger to see if he will giggle a bit. That’s just a joke Charles don’t take it personal, but you really should consider losing some of that weight guy.
