I am slowly dying of laughter from reading that comment 31 made Edit: and his name, he must really like teabags

I've done this a ton of times, I used to do it to make my History coursework more interesting, but you have to get a sponge or a cloth and wet the paper right along where you want to fire to stop... If his brother just set it on fire and hoped for the best then he's a moron.

i can assure you you're wrong. the analogy means don't burn friendships/connection. "britches" doesn't work with what the saying actually means

51- You got lucky that your parents saw! If they hadn't, the funniest day of your life could have been the most unfair and humiliating. Or worse, you could have been forced to do your homework. *DUN DUN DUN*

Yeah, I can relate to #51. I had recently gotten a new dog (whom is behaved now), she never saw paper before and ripped up my homework which feel to the floor overnight. I looked everywhere for it and then recognized some of the subject matter on these torn particles. I tried explaining to my teacher but they refused to believe me and said they couldn't believe I'd ever use such a childish excuse...I've never gotten an "F" before until that day. Luckily, I asked if there was any altern
