in order to test its efficiency, i would have to try it on you to see if it works reh vosgo

I hope it does because I'm a bit xerotzefalos...

xerodjefaloni is measured in units of kurubetos how many kurubetoses do you think you are when it comes xerodjefaliing. we can sharpen it accordingly.

Would you like to see one of my extensive collection of chakees cousin Lardo, one dark night...???


That's actually what my handle (name) was supposed to be, wasn't sure how to spell it, I thought it was a bigger knife and was pronounced "chakouee"... It was the nick-name of my great grandfather who was a bandit/freedom fighter under the Ottomans... you see how I forgive these rascals :oops:
