      And the little boy keeps coming back for more. Can't help yourself, can you? The silly little human boy with his toy. A hypocrite who doesn't even know the meaning of the word. You will be back, because you're moron, a member of the 64%. You're the reason the gene pool needs a lifeguard. And if I wanted to hear from an asshole, I'd fart.
