''Im fucking threaders''
''PT was a fucking lick out, that new pti is fucking nails''
''He's a fucking chegwin''
''I smashed it though, piece of piss. It was redders though. My feet are in clip, those new boots are webbo''
''Yeah gen up, I was threaders. What a chegwin, I should have chinned it off.''
''sounds turbo wank, what a bunch of chegwins. I heard all ally kit is getting banned aswell by that new OC, what a massive chegwin.''
'' 'brow it''
etcI hope all the politicians who were depressed and stressed because they got caught fiddling expenses are feeling better after their 3 months off.
I bet the lads in Afghanistan were worried sick about them.
