Well well well what do we have here!? You survived the abortion your mother tried to get...help put a child here and now a turd is making another turd. Go figure. Someone needs to flush the toilet on this massive walking floater. I guess he thinks it OK to beat his child and get him angry to go out and beat my child. Look at him asking himself how long it will be before I'm sexualized in my cell. Do us a favor please kill yourself. Thank you have a wonderful day.
