  3. Da Fluck Chinar town?

    Popped off the plane last week started teaching Engrish. Banged two hotties in my first two classes one Jbush Biyatch and one bald hawt Chinkalinkya.

    Went down Chinar town and ate a freaking half a dog and half a ‘Merican bald eagle dinner set and I haven’t shat in over a week now! Bro says I must have slirped down a tapeworm or two. Chinkya says da only way is I gotta eat cow bile now. Da Fluck!
