If there was no gravity on Earth, professional athletes would be out of a job.
There is a guy in my building who is half German and half Japanese. He has natural blond hair and speaks fluent Japanese. Oh, you gotta love mutts. Why do you always see the same kinds of mutts though? Half Asian and half white. Half black and half white. Half white and half white. We need more funky mutts in the world. I hereby order all Palestinians to start fucking some Jews. I mean it. I want to see some French on Canadian action. In nine months, I expect the world to be swamped with half Texan, half Taiwanese children.
I'm probably the only Asian in the world who doesn't like boba. Honestly, I can't stand that shit. What the fuck is boba? And what kind of name is "boba" anyway? Sounds like the title of an Atari video game or a bad art museum. Does the term "boba" refer to the tiny breast implant thingies or the coffee-tea-milk liquid they float around in? Moreover, is "boba" plural? If Rory and I each get one boba beverage, have we just ordered "bobas"? Does Bobby sell bobas by seashore? Whatever the answers may be, I still hate boba. It's up there with water on my list of least favorite drinks.
