Howdy all of you shit-for-brains anus lickers. Have you ever been right about anything in the year plus that you've been prognosticating? I swear, I've never seen so much BS. You're all totally obsessed with the show and always throwing out these made-up scenarios. I think you're all too used to playing Dungeons and Dragons in your parents' basements. What a bunch of weirdos.
