Listen -- if we're playing Scrabble and you spell bromance, I can and will flip the table and force-feed you the letter tiles. I'm oldschool. "No, you just have anger management issues." SAY THAT TO MY FACE, I DARE YOU -- SAY IT TO MY FACE. "I...I don't want to." Haha, that's what I thought, punk! *smashes own finger with a hammer, tears off fingernail* Don't f*** with me.

Thanks to BBQ, who agrees playing Words With Friends is a great way to end friendships.
