    Two raging Narcissists working together…should be fun.

  • Amber

    Two despicable men.

  • Charl Eton

    no more despicable than the asshole who judges them…

  • Amber

    YOU are the asshole. A simple Google search should be informative enough to tell you about their character. Hence, despicable.

    Now fuck off.

  • Charl Eton

    ME? Yeah. I can do capitals too, because capitals mean something, apparently. I think you are hilarious. The terminally pathetic use google as their reference. Simple is for the simpleton. Grow up and do a real search and you will find they are both human. Get yourself a life besides that bitter and twist you live in. Thanks for the send off. I’m gonna fuck off to the beach and continue to live a life your pathetic dreams can’t conceive. Try not being an angry four year old, Amber. Wake up decent and don’t just shit on folks you don’t know.
