  • I think it's something like "ditching class right in front of the teacher," or "using school resources to inexplicably annoy total strangers around the world," or even "pissing off the owner of Wordie because I'm too dumb to read the site first," or something like that, elgiad.

    Just guessin'.

  • Bonniee, you mentioned a research paper earlier in this thread. What is the subject of the research?

    November 14, 2008

  • That doesn't even make sense. And someone needs several thousand spelling lessons.

  • And her name is Lucy van Pelt. Five cents, please.

  • The doctor will see you now.

    November 2, 2008

  • I'm now kind of hoping they come back.

    November 2, 2008

  • Plethora, you're not people like that, no matter how old you are. :-)

    November 2, 2008

  • kewpid, just wait until you see their dance in the school talent show. They do the same thing every year.

    This one time, Kelseyy punched me in the face. It was awesome. Also, I think Bonnie is mad at Brennah because she's the only one who knows about her nose job.

    I can't wait to not be a teenager any longer so I don't get lumped in with people like that purely because of age.

  • *whew*

  • Maybe we could peer pressure others into acting like sensible human beings. I mean, it's the coolest, all the kids are doing it.

  • Hey, lets not gang up on c_b all now ok?
    lets wait for a while and see what other gross stuff she does. then we can be mad.

    *huge eye roll*

    October 31, 2008

  • Yeah, thanks for reminding him... *deflates* I don't know what I was thinking, trying to contribute to conversations here. I mean, I'm such a doosh.

    I'm such a doosh.

    I'm such a doosh.

    October 31, 2008

  • kewpid: You forgot to mention that c_b is a doosh three times over. :-)

  • So if I've got this straight, "Brennah" is/was the queen bee of the social superstructure of this particular high school. "Bonnie", "Taylor", "Lauren", and her b.f.f. "Kelsey" are getting revenge by venting all over the internets.

    What shenanigans will transpire? Will Brennah manage to put a stop to the revolt? Have Bonnie's efforts to replace Brennah's moisturiser with foot cream paid off? Have Taylor's protein bars succeeded in Brennah piling on the pounds (say to goodbye to that modelling career girlfriend!)? Does Brennah know Kelsey has been secretly sleeping with her boyfriend during P.E. every Thursday in the A/V Storeroom behind the auditorium?

    This is more than adequate whilst I wait for Gossip Girl to finish downloading.

  • Or chatbots, even? It's the Turing Test Plus, isn't it?

    Unless John can see anything suggestive in the IP logs for Wordie, we're probably left guessing. I think the explanation that these really are children is most economical.

    October 31, 2008

  • I got the impression Kelseyy is the sock puppet of one of our regular wags. Maybe not. How do you tell the difference between people who spell like three-year-olds and sock puppets?

    October 31, 2008

  • Kelseyy, if you want people to "stay out of this" (whatever you think "this" is), then take your private conversations to a private place. Everything you post on this site is fair game for EVERYONE who visits it, from now till forever. You know this is a public site, right? And that your comments aren't ever going away, right? So, like, if Brennah or Trevor or whoever, dickless or not, ever shows up, they'll be able to read all this bullshit you and your friends said about them. You know that, right?

    October 31, 2008

  • Sorry Kelseyy -- no can do! This is not a private chat room and by the way do you kiss your mother with that mouth?

    October 31, 2008

  • But seriously: has Trevor corroborated Brennah's claims?

    October 31, 2008

  • okay seriously.
    people who dont even know what were talking need to stay out of this.
    really.
    and yeah.
    i freakin hate brennah.
    she said she had sex with trevor.
    and sucked his dick.
    but i know its a load of bull shit.

    October 31, 2008

  • OMG THATS AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ROTFLIAWM*
