(didn't read the article)
I just think grammar should be boring or w/e I said
hope he gets a kick in
Had to stop reading after it became apparent that the child is an awful prick.
now i'm writing about writing a letter!
pretty sure theyre just the product of the author's parents asking someone from the guardian to do them a favour during a dinner party
what a dumb cunt.
me calling xylopwn a prick qualifies as bullying, does it?
to collect the homework from everyone. I'm surprised that the kid's parents/teachers hadn't told him not to get the story published. No one likes a pedantic teachers pet type teenager; not even teacher's.
(Notice any grammatical errors above, kid?)
calling it now. bump this in 30 years time.
Cause this is mine.
'Not even Buzzfeed would of printed that article. Not even Buzzfeed.'
Not me, though.
your obviously the sort of person who watches QI

as it's clearly creative license and not a grammatical error surely?
Fuck off kid!
