Description
Donna Kwon September 17, 2008 Mrs. Hannah Social Studies “You know what? You can go *bleep* your *bleeping* *bleep* *bleeping* *bleep* because I don’t *bleeping* give a *bleeping* *bleeeep* to whatever *bleeping* *bleep* you *bleeping* do! *Bleep*!” As you can see, I like my freedom of expression. “I *bleeping* don’t *bleeping* like your *bleeping* *bleep* God, so you can *bleeping* go *bleeping* stuff it!
