 @ronsutton1776 [sigh] I suppose it falls to me to respond to this one : U MAD, BRO?

 

 

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to cleanse myself after that. It's best to wash the 4chan off oneself as quickly as possible.

 @ronsutton1776 And the troll stops by long enough to fart, stink up the room and wave it around a bit.  Here's a buck fidy.  Go buy yourself a sense of humor and some Beano, dickhead.
