Jonathan "John" Oppenheimer Herbert, (Also Known As Herbert the Pervert) is a creepy old pedophile and hebephile, who lives down the street from The Griffins. He is mostly sexually attracted to Chris Griffin, but has the hots for preadolescent and other adolescent boys between the ages of 8 and 19 as well. He never is sexual towards 20+ year olds. He first appeared in "Neighbor Pains", when he moved into Spooner Street. He used to be voiced by Mike Henry before being replaced by Richard Chamberlain.


John Herbert was born on Febuary 11, at AM in Concord, New Hampshire, to Mary Herbert and Scott Herbert. John was the youngest kid in the family, having a brother named Jim Herbert, who was the oldest, and a sister named Jane Herbert, who was the middle child.

During his childhood, John acted very effeminate and indulged more in his sister's girly activities than he did with his brother. He enjoyed playing with dollies, having tea parties, and playing dress up with Jane, as opposed to playing football, playing cowboys and indians, and playing with dinosaur toys with Jim. Mary took notice of this and was concerned that her son might be a homosexual but Scott told her that even if he was gay, there was nothing to worry about. This caused a lot of arguing between the two parents, with Mary saying that John needed to be reprogrammed and Scott saying that there was nothing wrong with him being gay.

One day, John came home from school, saying that he had a crush on a male student. Mary was horrified to see that her worst nightmare had come true and kept punishing him and scolding him for his sexuality, while Scott demanded that she leave him alone and let him be who he truly is. Eventually, Mary had John sent to a homosexual reprogramming camp, hoping to beat the gay out of him. However, all that happened there was John fell in love with another gay boy there and the two became boyfriends.

Mary and Scott would continue to fight and spend endless nights screaming into each other's faces about John being gay. During one of their fights, Scott finally let it slip that he too was a homosexual and that he never even wanted to marry Mary in the first place. He explained that he always knew he was gay but knew society would never let him marry a man, so he married her instead. Scott's one and only hope was that if he let his son be proudly gay, then maybe sometime in the future, society would be more accepting of homosexuals and he could live the normal life he never got to live. Mary was mortified and stunned in absolute terror to hear this and came to the conclusion that John got his homosexuality from his dad. She then demanded a divorce, which Scott happily agreed to.

Mary and Scott filed for a divorce and Mary got full custody of Jim and Jane, while John was left with Scott full-time. Mary knew that Jim and Jane were okay to keep as they both had crushes of the opposite sex, so she knew they didn't pick up their dad's homosexuality. From then on, Mary and her family went their separate ways, while the homosexuals were left to live by themselves.

Scott had gotten his wish of leaving his pitiful ex-wife but was still stuck in a world, where he could never get to be with a man. He felt that his only choice from then on, would be to have sex with his son. John, who was only 8 years old at the time, felt as though he had no choice either and consented to having sex with his own father. This sexual relationship would continue on for all of John's childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood, making him grow up, feeling as though this was completely normal.

Outside of home, John would go to school, get into sports, and go to parties with friends. Life for him was more or less completely normal, even though inside the house, things were totally fucked up. Even inside the house, his life was mostly normal. John's sexual activity with his dad wasn't even a major part of either of their lives. It was really just as "major" as a sexual relationship between any regular old husband and wife. In mean, yeah, it happened but, you know. It's not like it affects the other things you do. It's not like you go around talking about it all the time. It's just something completely normal. It was around this time, John's life started to get better too. His mom was no longer around to abuse him and repress his sexuality and he was free to live a normal life. This only made the idea of sex with his father seem even more "right". So, this relationship went on and the world was none the wiser.

In , John graduated high school and immediately after turning 18, he moved out of the house to go live on his own. He moved into a nice neighborhood that had lots of children around and he would look upon these children and notice that he had lots of sexual feelings for them, similar to the feelings his father had for him. Herbert made friends with the other parents in the neighborhood and got trusted to look after their children as a babysitter. During these times babysitting them, he would have sex with them and tell them to keep this a secret from their parents, saying that if they told on him, they would be the ones getting in trouble. John's primary job was a gym teacher at the local middle school, which only gave him more opportunities to prey on little boys. John also got other little jobs around the neighborhood as an ice cream man, a birthday entertainer, and a swimming instructor, all of which made him even more appealing to his victims.

In , a now year-old John, signed up for the draft in lieu of WWII and joined the air force to fight the Nazis over in Berlin. When he was stationed in the barracks, there were already three other "Johns" there, so his general and his army buddies just addressed him by his last name, "Herbert". This would eventually be John's main name from then on. Herbert was an excellent fighter pilot and he went off to fight several fights with Nazis and do a pretty good job at it, too. Herbert was one of the greatest members of his force and won lots of purple hearts. His friends all gave him the nickname, "Silverbird" and he was hailed as a very highly respected member of his team.

In , Herbert was kicked out of the military after another crew mate discovered a bunch of child pornography in his suitcase. Herbert was outed as a homosexual pedophile and his general kicked him out of the group and removed his picture from the wall of fame. Herbert had been shunned by his people and the cops had been called on him too. However, Herbert had evaded arrest by fleeing town before the cops could arrive and starting a new life somewhere else.

Herbert would move to the suburbs of Cortland, New York and live his life there with a blank slate. Just like before, Herbert lived in a neighborhood with children and would "babysit" them, just like he did in his home state. He worked as a boy scout troop leader and unsurprisingly, would do the exact same things to them as all boy scouts troop leaders ever do to boy scouts.

Herbert lived in Cortland until where he got in a lot of trouble once again. He was taken to court and proven guilty of child molestation, child abduction, child pornography, and a bunch of other crimes that begin with the word "child". Before he could get arrested, Herbert fled the state and moved to Quahog, Rhode Island, where he managed to escape the radar and start anew in his new state, just like before.

John Herbert first moved to Spooner Street, along with his pet dog, Jesse in the episode "Neighbor Pains", which is when we were first introduced to him. This is when he first met and fell in love with Chris Griffin. He had made several passes in an attempt to rape him. Everyone on Spooner Street was comically oblivious to all of Herbert's obvious signs of being a pedophile. As such, Herbert was allowed to get up close in person with Chris, hire Chris to do chores for him, and even come to his house to babysit him. The only person, who was aware of Herbert being a pedophile was Stewie Griffin, but nobody could understand him.

In "Pubic Indecency", Herbert the Pervert was aroused by Chris, going through puberty and kept hitting on him some more. Herbert tried to get Chris into bed with him, but failed.

In "To Love and Die in Dixie", Chris got hired as the paperboy and delivered a newspaper to Herbert's house. Herbert tried to persuade Chris into his house for some food, but Chris turned him down. The Griffin Family went to live in Dixie for about a week, and by the time they came back, their answering machine was chock full of messages, all from Herbert, pestering them, about when the paperboy was coming back.

In "Lethal Weapons", Herbert was attacked by New Yorkers.

In "The Sandloss", Chris overthrew his dad's baseball into Herbert the Pervert's backyard, while playing catch with friends. Herbert got the ball and suggestively called the boys to "come and get it", a call of which they all resisted. Chris and his friends were afraid to get it back out, with the fear of running into his dog, Jesse. When Herbert caught Chris, Chris admitted that he didn't want Herbert to watch his baseball game because he was so creepy. Hebert said that he'd give Chris his ball back and not attend his game under one condition: He had to go in disguise as a girl and go to the local elementary school's girl swim team and pretend he was his grandpa so he could be allowed in and watch the underage girls swimming.

In "And the Wiener Is ", Herbert was interested in Chris' big penis.

In "Model Misbehavior", he saw the nudist boy, Jeff Campbell at the mall and said "Holy moly! Today must be my birthday!", super sexed up an interested in that naked boy.

In "North by North Quahog", he disguises himself as a teenage boy and goes to Buddy Cianci Jr. High School on prom night and asks two boys to dance. Brian observes the scene, chaperoning the party and comments "That is one ugly eighth grader."

In "Brian the Bachelor", he watched Chris dancing around in his bathroom shirtless, from a ladder, propped up against the house. The ladder fell over and Herbert crashed into the streets, where he got run over by a car.

In "Petarded", Herbert was singing the song "Peter is Slow", while driving in a car, with tons of little girls in the trunk, singing backup.

In "The Perfect Castaway", he buys an ice cream truck from Brian. This ice cream truck would go on to make many appearances, later in the series, as Herbert's primary method of transportation.

In "Mo' Jobs", Herbert drives his ice cream truck around and abducts kids. Not knowing what the business is really about, Peter applies for a job, working as an ice cream man on his truck. He gets fired on his first day for eating all the ice cream.

In "", he sneaks up behind a boy and a girl playing in the sandbox, with a net, during the song "A Bag of Weed", and a bag of weed lands in his net. Distracting him from the abduction, as now he can he happy that he can get high. Two more bags of weed land in the hands of the kids and they're happy to smoke also.

In "Road to the Multiverse", an alternate version of Herbert appears in a dimension, where everything is drawn by Disney. Here, he is portrayed as the witch from Snow White. He offers to put an apple in the pie, Disney Lois is making, to which everyone replies with "NO!", throwing a bunch of pies in his face and slamming the door on him.

In "Go, Stewie, Go!", he watched in shock, as "Karina Sunflower" came out as "Desmond Sunflower".

In "And Then There Were Fewer", Herbert drives his ice cream truck to James Woods' mansion. James Woods betrayed Herbert the Pervert by replacing his old man pills with hyper energy pills.

In "Chris Cross", Chris Griffin goes to live with Herbert the Pervert. When he did, they slept in different beds and Herbert edged closer to Chris' bed closer and closer, as he explained to him that life was all about trying new things. Chris farted and drove Herbert away, ruining the sexy moment. Herbert would enjoy being with Chris at first but eventually, Herbert got sick of living with Chris because Chris kept misplacing all his pornographic movies, making a mess all over the living room, and spending all his time playing TV games. Herbert eventually kicked Chris out of the house and Chris told him that he faked all his light-headedness, when he took his roofie Kool-Aid. Herbert went down to a dinner date with a friend of his (a priest) and his husband, (an altar boy), down in a log cabin and sadly told them that he and Chris broke up.

In "Game Guy Advance", Herbert's avatar is shown in the Virtual Reality world. His avatar shows him as a little boy talking to other little boys and asking if they'd like to come over to his house and play.

In "The Dating Game", he was one of the people on Tinder, looking for a year old boy.

In "The Quagmire Housefire", Quagmire rebuilds his house after it was burned down. However, Quagmire had a lot of sex-related technology installed in the walls of his house, such as a hold-down-o-tron for his bed, trap doors to a sex dungeon, video cameras in the walls, etc. and it would be impossible for him to get his hands on that stuff again. Fortunately, Herbert just so happened to have all the same stuff in his own house and he lent some of it to him. Quagmire commented, "I didn't know he was such a sex maniac too, and at his age, wow, good for him.", not knowing the kinds of people he uses these on. He noticed how a few of the machines were too small for adults and came to the conclusion that old women were frail enough to be handled with this kind of stuff.

In "Switch the Flip", Herbert switched bodies with Tom Tucker and used his job as a news reporter to tell little boys to come to his basement. He later switched bodies with Peter Griffin and had sex with Lois, which neither of them enjoyed.


John Herbert the Pervert is a wrinkly, old creepy man with a weird shaped head. His head is bald and only has gray hair on the sides, with a few inconsistent strands coming out from the scalp. He has three old man circles in his scalp, just above some eyebrow wrinkles above his eyes. His eyebrows are gray and bushy and his nose is droopy. He has weird, crooked, inconsistent teeth, scattered about his big mouth and he has a slightly butt-shaped chin. His neck is very flabby and has a bunch of loose skin rolls on it. He wears a light blue bath robe and a white undershirt. He also wears white pants in the same color as his shirt. He has brown slippers. He also walks with a gray walker. He has a very soft, high pitched voice, that whistles whenever he makes the "S" sound.


John Herbert the Pervert is a creepy, perverted old man, who lives alone in a house. He does absolutely nothing with his life, because he has no job. The only thing he's ever done with his life that we're aware of is that he used to be a war veteran. So, he basically spends his entire life, thinking about little and teenage boys. He never gets caught for what he does, because he's very sneaky and shifty, and knows how to get around the rules. In fact the police seem to understand that Mr. Herbert is too old to get arrested. He also seems to get around the rules without care, because he doesn't see the police as any conflict at all. He seems to be a generally happy and blissful guy, who is totally happy with his entire life, revolving around being a creepy old molester who tries in vain to rapes kids and teens.


Chris Griffin

Herbert is in love with Chris and constantly stalks him, in attempt to have sex with him. Chris is totally oblivious to this and considers him to be his best friend. Herbert has Chris come over to his house and do chores for him, such as raking leaves and mowing the lawn. Herbert rewards Chris, by giving him snacks, such as cyanide popsicles, melatonin cookies, and spiked drinks. Due to Chris' massive girth and low metabolism, these rape drugs never work on him. As such, Chris is one of the few kids Herbert has never managed to rape, but that's not going to stop him from courting his number one prize.


Jesse is Herbert's pet dog. The two of them are just as creepy as each other. Like how Herbert molests kids, Jesse molests puppies and they bond over this interest. They both share "Mmmm"s, whenever Herbert pervs out over a little boy.

Cleveland Jr.

Junior is a common victim of Herbert too. This has mostly been shown in The Cleveland Show. In the episode "Cleveland Moves In", Herbert was sad that Junior was leaving the neighborhood. In "It's the Great Pancake, Junior Brown", Junior cutaway to a Halloween in Quahog, where Herbert tricked him into touching his d In "Murray Christmas", Herbet came out of Junior's suitcase.

Herbert (Family Guy)

Fictional character

John Herbert, nicknamed "Herbert the Pervert", is a fictional character in the animated television seriesFamily Guy, created and voiced by Mike Henry. Herbert is an elderly neighbor of the Griffin family who first appeared in the season 3 episode "To Love and Die in Dixie". A pedohebephile who is attracted to young boys, he harbors unrequited love for Chris Griffin.

Herbert has received mixed reviews from critics, who have expressed varying opinions on the pedophilia-related humor involving the character. Herbert has appeared in various Family Guy merchandise and has made several crossover appearances in The Cleveland Show, a Family Guy spin-off.

Role in Family Guy[edit]

Herbert lives in the fictional town of Quahog, Rhode Island, which is modeled after Cranston, Rhode Island.[1][2][3] He is an elderly man who dresses in a baby blue bathrobe and utilizes a walking frame due to his age; his dog Jesse is similarly elderly and decrepit, being unable to use his hind legs.[4]

In his first appearance, "To Love and Die in Dixie" (season 3, ), Herbert attempts to seduce Chris inside the house by offering him a popsicle that Herbert insists is in his basement. Despite his pleas, Chris refuses the offer. In the episode "The Courtship of Stewie's Father" (season 4, ), Chris breaks Herbert's window with a baseball and, in attempts to pay off the debt, Chris assists Herbert with chores around his house, much to Herbert's delight. Herbert later invites him to dinner wherein a souvenir photograph of the pair is taken.[5][6] When Chris gets a new job in "Movin' Out (Brian's Song)" (season 6, ), his younger brother Stewie takes over his paper route with Herbert attempting to seduce him much in the same way as his sexual advances towards Chris, but is rebuffed by Stewie, who refers to him as a "perverted old freak", though this only furthers his lust for the infant.[7] In the episode "Play It Again, Brian" (season 6, ), Herbert is hired by Peter and Lois to babysit their children Chris, Stewie and Meg. Herbert accepts the offer, claiming he will wear his "snazziest duds", erupting into the song "All I Need is the Girl" (though modified to reflect his unrequited affection for Chris).[8][9] He claims to have no interest in Meg in large part due to her age and gender,[7] and is disappointed when she is only of the three to bathe him.[8] Herbert has a grand-niece, Sandy, whom he helps attract Chris in the style of Cyrano de Bergerac in the episode "Valentine's Day in Quahog" (season 11, ).[10]

In the episode "Padre de Familia" (season 6, ), Herbert is revealed to be have been a war veteran, as he is shown singing "God Bless the USA" in a local Veterans Day parade.[11]

This is furthered in the season 9 () episode "German Guy", in which Herbert reveals he was a member of the United States Army Air Forces during World War II and was captured by Wehrmacht forces when he was shot down over Germany while escorting a bombing raid. Although the Nazi forces initially wished to place Herbert in a prisoner-of-war camp, they instead placed him in Dachau Concentration Camp after discovering several pictures of underage boys on his person, prompting them to accuse him of being homosexual.

Years later, Herbert discovers his tormentor, SS Lieutenant Franz Schlechtnacht making a living in Quahog selling wooden puppets. Herbert claims that, while imprisoned, Schlechtnacht tasked him with sorting the recyclables within the concentration camp, which frequently lead to Herbert's hands becoming "kinda sticky" as a result of soda spilling upon them. Schlechtnacht similarly attempts romantic advances towards Chris, which prompts a fight between Herbert and the former Nazi general.[12]

Herbert has appeared on various occasions in Family Guy spinoffs, such as in various cutaway gags in several episodes of The Cleveland Show.[13] In Laugh It Up, Fuzzball: The Family Guy Trilogy,[14][15] Herbert appears as Obi-Wan Kenobi.[16]


Herbert was created by writer and voice actor Mike Henry. Henry met Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane when his brother Patrick was a classmate of MacFarlane's at the Rhode Island School of Design. Henry was invited to write and create characters for Family Guy after the show was picked up. The first character he created was Cleveland Brown,[17] and he later created Herbert.[17]

Herbert was not originally a pedophile; Henry pitched the idea to the writers of the show, leading to the decision to make him one.[17] As with most of the other characters he created, Henry voices Herbert.[17] Henry based Herbert's voice and appearance on an elderly man he met when he worked in a grocery store when he was in high school. In an interview Henry described that man as a sweet person.[17]


IGN, an American entertainment website, has generally commented positively on him. They pointed out that Herbert is one of the most popular recurring characters in the series,[4][18] referring to him (with his dog Jesse) as one of the characters that stuck out from the rest.[18] They also noted that one of the reasons Herbert is funny is because of his "soft, high-pitched whistling voice".[4]

"Herbert is one of the series' most popular minor characters, having appeared in an impressive 28 episodes. Part of Herbert's appeal is his ability to seamlessly integrate sexually suggestive comments into regular conversation without being noticed by authority figures".

Ahsan Haque, IGN.[4]

Although IGN has praised Herbert in general they have criticized some aspects of him.[4][18] In their review of "Blue Harvest", a retelling and parody of the film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, recasting the show's characters into Star Wars roles, IGN criticized the choice of putting Herbert in the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, stating that it never creates any actual humor.[19] They also criticized the constant use of Herbert, commenting that it was entertaining for the first two times, but that it quickly became overused.[4][18] In their list of "What Else Should Family Guy Make Fun Of?", IGN commented that Herbert would be perfect to play Major Toht and Hogwarts' new Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor should Family Guy ever decide to make parodies of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Harry Potter, respectively.[20]

A February article written by Hanh Nguyen for TV Guide listed pedophilia among the 12 biggest taboos shown on Family Guy, naming Herbert as the "creepiest of all" references to the disorder.[21] Rowan Kaiser of The A.V. Club criticized the character as an example of how the series occasionally fails in its deliberately offensive humor. He called the character "a black hole of shittiness whose every appearance brings out the worst tendencies of Family Guy", adding that his "appearance brings every episode he's in to a screeching halt".[22]

Herbert, along with his dog Jesse, ranked spot number 16 in IGN's "Top 25 Family Guy Characters".[4] Herbert also ranked number five on IGN's "The Cleveland Show Casting Couch", which showed characters that IGN would find interesting to put in The Cleveland Show.[18]


In , the first series of Family Guy toy figurines was released by Mezco Toyz. Each member of the Griffin family and other characters (including Herbert) had their own toy, with the exception of Stewie, of whom two different figures were made.[23] Over the course of two years, four more series of toy figures have been released.[24] Herbert is also featured on the Family Guy: Live in Vegas CD.[25]

Primary Employment

  • Retired U.S. Army Veteran
  • Elder Member of Skull and Bones Society

John Herbert is an elderly pedohebephile[1] who lives at 35Spooner Street with his old, crippled dog, Jesse. He has a high-pitched, very soft, effeminate voice and with a slight whistle lisp. He is often seen wearing a light blue robe and slippers and uses a zimmer-frame walker to get around. He is a retired United States Army veteran. He becomes fixated on Chris in "To Love and Die in Dixie" when Chris took up a paper route and developed an unhealthy obsession with him. When the family returned from the South, he left messages asking what had happened to the paper boy. Herbert frequently seems to make inappropriate, sexually-tinged comments to teenage boys. It is revealed later on that he is the eldest member of the Skull and Bones secret society. He is shown to be Roman Catholic and goes to the same church as the Griffins in "Boys Do Cry".


Originally stated in the DVD commentary for "To Love and Die in Dixie" in Family Guy: The Freakin' Sweet Collection, he was going to be a creepy driver of a school bus that Chris was afraid to go near.

Herbert has a high voice and speaks with a whistle. According to Seth MacFarlane, Herbert was created when Mike Henry would use his voice to scold the writers when they had trouble coming up with new ideas for episodes. He admitted that it made him laugh every time and decided to adapt him as a character. Mike Henry had also said that the inspiration was a senior citizen that used to work with him at a grocery store.

Military Service

Herbert is a retired United States Army veteran. He is seen in "Padre de Familia" at a Veteran's Day festival in Quahog Park in his dress uniform singing the song "God Bless the USA". In "German Guy" it is revealed that he served in the Army Air Corps during World War II, but was captured by the Germans, and sent to a concentration camp, because he was believed to be gay and was given hard labor by Franz Gutentag.


In "To Love and Die in Dixie", Chris is delivering newspapers to his house, and he tries to persuade Chris to come inside. At the end, he leaves messages on the phone, and they are all about Chris.

In "From Method to Madness", he sees Jeff Campbell, a teenage nudist, and says "Holy moly, it must be my birthday!"

In the album "Family Guy: Live in Vegas", he sings the Broadway song "One Boy" from Bye Bye Birdie, and is sung by a female character about her boyfriend.

In Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, he is heard during the intermission asking, "Chris do you have a shower scene? Or do I have to keep dreamin'?"

In "North by North Quahog", he disguises himself as an eighth-grader and asks two boys to dance. Brian points out that he is "one ugly eighth-grader".

When they are singing the song after Peter is tested and found to be retarded in the DVD cut of "Petarded", you can see him dancing towards the end.

When Chris takes his shirt off in the bathroom in "Brian the Bachelor", he climbs up a ladder and spies on him, mimicking a scene in National Lampoon's Animal House.

In "The Perfect Castaway", he asks Brian for an ice-cream truck with which to entice children, which would later appear in "And Then There Were Fewer".

In "The Courtship of Stewie's Father", Chris breaks his window with a baseball, and Lois decides to pay for the broken window out of Chris's allowance. At Herbert's suggestion, Peter makes Chris do chores for Herbert. He later takes Chris out to dinner. At that point, he fantasizes about life with Chris. In his fantasy family, he and Chris have two children, a boy who resembles Chris, and a girl who resembles Herbert.

In "Whistle While Your Wife Works", he sends his dog Jesse out for a walk, and the dog attempts to eat Peter's finger, which was previously blown off.

In "Prick Up Your Ears", he is lined up to shake Stewie after he is shaken by Chris and Brian. Later in the episode, Stewie steals his dentures in the night while he is sleeping and dreaming about Fred Savage.

With no police in Quahog in "Barely Legal", Peter states that he had hired some homeless boys to pickpocket old, rich people. When they begin to shuffle through Herbert's pockets and clothes he takes pleasure.

Herbert can be seen in line at the Griffin's garage sale in "Road to Rupert". Approaching Chris, Herbert asks him if he is selling any clothes from the summer. Chris then tells Herbert that all he has fitting that description is a pair of shorts, to which Herbert replies "Sweet Jesus!".

After Stewie takes over Chris' paper route in "Movin' Out (Brian's Song)", Herbert noticed the new paper boy in which Stewie tells him to piss off and Herbert takes it as a challenge.

Herbert made an appearance in "Play It Again, Brian" in which Peter and Lois hire him to babysit the Griffin children because he's "watched" several children. While doing so he makes several attempts to seduce Chris, at one point trying to get Chris to bathe him; Meg does it instead, and Herbert exclaims "Rats!". Later he reads Peter and the Wolf to Chris as a bedtime story, changing the moral to suit his own means, and Chris asks Herbert if he's a pedophile the reaction to this is not seen. During the closing credits, he is shown sleeping at the foot of Chris' bed, where the Evil Monkey tries but fails to threaten him.

In "Road to the Multiverse", he appeared in the Disney universe parodying the Evil Queen from Snow White.

Family Guy - Best of Herbert

Gillian considered the situation, the temptation was great. - Ha - ha, I have to be able to endure, this is only the first day. Now a new chauffeur will show up, want to pay, and at this time I will be sitting somewhere with my panties down.

She laughed at the anticipation of such a situation, and decided that the senior manager was right not to allow her to be excommunicated. Especially when she notices that the unbearable bird fluttered out of the toilet door and it is not known what she was.
