  • Ballz from Lincoln NeThe Duke, John Wayne.. when they thaw him out we can get rid of all this silly woke bulls--t. The Duke will personally put a foot in the ass of every whiny liberal pony tail wearing, non-American he can find. Cry me a river you participation trophy getting, gluten free, man bun wearing liberals. Duke will bludgeon your entire family so you cant breed.
  • Bailman from Springfield MoIn the 5th verse, how about "... Sometimes I sleep in motels, and I piss on the floor. Next to the toilet, so the maids can do more..." That would be the definition of an "asshole", and one of my friends would do that in Laughlin NV at Pioneer Hotel and Gambling Hall after a long night of heavy gambling, drinking and loosing. In fact, it didn't stop there. He would take a shower, then tear the shower head off and throw it right out the window into the parking lot. Then steal things like the ashtrays, phone books, towels, and even the phone itself one time. He would go to the buffet and take the food out of the display with just his bare hands (like the chicken, and soup, etc..) and NOT pay. One time he got so pissed off at the casino he actually was told to leave, and went into the elevator, tore the elevator panel off, and pissed on the floor. Needless to say, he did get arrested a few times. There's more to this whole story with him, but I guess what I'm really trying to say is he's "an asshole".
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkIt makes sense. Dennis is from Massachusetts. This guy has the best rants still.
  • Daniel from Winchester, Ohwow its actually on here that's awesome, this song will dominate the entire world!!!
