Better than hearing, "Yo, Joey. What am I, a retard or somethin? What, you think your s*** don't stink? Get the hell outta here before I bat you over your freakin' head!"

Or something like that...



I like how some of them pronounce the word YES as YE ES. Two syllables! Kinda sexy when some of the country girls down here talk like that!

Think you could fit in Abooja? :p
