Ha Ha Clinton Dix? What kind of a stupid name is that? His parents should have some of their hair pulled from it's root and run a 23 year DNA test on it and find out what kind of drugs they were on when this boy was conceived and then born. I knew a guy in 2007 that was in this late 20's or early 30's and his real name was Sunshine. I know what his parents were taking when this kid came along!
