You guys are really jobless. Get over this teenagey angst and get on with life. Holy Mother of God! You got married with this mental age?

the mad momma said...

ooh, look guys - itchy caught a troll in her fishing net. Shall we fry it for dinner Itchy?

I am sure it wont be a huge loss to the world since the poor thing doesnt even have a name or an identity. is there any point in living a life without name and identity?!!
