They broke your mom's tailbone? That is awful. I've never heard of that. I liked your answers. Good job!

I'm with you on the crocs - I hate those things. You're lucky your mom didn't mistreat you for years just to make up for the tailbone/mallet thing. That's creepy.

Um, hi. The line "nobody likes you, everybody told me" was STOLEN FROM ME. So not cool.

However, I did get hit with the best comeback (which has no comeback), rendering the line utterly useless. *Drumroll* "Who are you kidding? Nobody talks to you." (This is A in the LBC, btw)
