    @Andrae Smith - Sure, but do you mean your afternoon or my afternoon? :p Thanks for the compliment, but I know my story sucks (I'm not as clever as you lot). I prefer writing novels. :D

    Would have been funnier if it ended with Joseph saying "Don't blame me" or "What the fuck?"

    @Thomas Kitchen That is a good question. 0_0 Well hows about the next time we're both on after Tuesday (exam that day and I'll be studying up to the exam)

    @erebh You, sir, have a good eye for humor! I found it funny as it is, but I like your suggestion.

    Here's are a couple more:

    I did a quick Google search, and I from what I found it should be lie, as in to "lie down" it would be lay, if I were laying down a book, or something similar. But I guess you're right because it is in the past tense. It should be lay.

    That chart pretty much solves the problem, but I found the whole doc sorta intresting (I'm a grammar nerd sometimes :p)
    And would "HarleyQ" be short for Harley Quinn? (please say yes!) lol

    I'm really sorry, I forgot about the 9 word limit. I'll think of something else.

    How to deal with England:

    Put a jacket;
    Put a sweater,
    That's much better.
