    We don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wipers. We fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

    I warned you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew, didn’t you? Oh, it’s just a harmless little bunny, isn’t it?

  19. Anderson says:

  32. I’m not going to ask him, you ask him.

    …and then when the Taliban see who has been kicking their butt they will all die of shame.

    It’s been a long war and the corporal was starting to look pretty good.

    Glad you could join us, I hope this dawn raid didn’t interfere with uggums beauty sleep.
