if you cannot get behind "my little midget bitch kick you in the dick," you will never appreciate rap music. it's like "dead in the middle of little italy, little did we know that we riddled two middlemen who didn't do diddly," except if stifler or cartman wrote it. it's magical.

Is this former NXT Superstar Danny Burch?!? It's pretty fucked up that you got bounced out of the first round at the UK Championship tournament. Hope the back of your head healed up OK.

new bigbang album is out this week, but apparently t.o.p. has to start his mandatory military service right now, so the group is calling it quits.
