I understand some people like to troll for the lulz. ;)

People have said that I am a diplomat. In 2nd grade, I had to be a
messenger between one boy and one girl during a verbal fight during recess.
I actually had to deliver "Yo Mamma" jokes between them since they didn't
want to talk *directly* to each other! (One of them was: Your mama's teeth
are so yellow that the sun sang "We are a family"!) I tried to keep a
straight face during that fight. hahaha

For me, it gets confusing when I have to read quotes nested in replies. I
prefer to read original messages. COLA is pretty hilarious to read at
times, and I don't want to block the funny stuff. :P
Thanks for introducing yourself!
