    My best mate recently announced he was going to marry a pencil.

    He couldn’t wait for us all to meet his bride 2B!

    You had this in your recommended YT videos Chompsky, ight?

    Oh wait no, I see you reposted it from Kottke.

    Silly me – I forgot that you – Chompsky- have provided a link to the source of every post you’ve done since 2010 right there at the bottom of the post.
