Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Honestly, i was going to try for some highbrow homework, possibly dealing with the Newsweek Koran scandal, but i got pinged to another Jilted Jenny story, and you can't beat the runaway bugeyed bride for an example of licentiousness. The best has to be this quote from her former paramour:

"I would have turned her ass in, no question," former flame Todd Kendrick told The Post.

Nice guy that Todd...well i guess he had attributes other than gentlemanliness and chivarly, which attracted her....

from what they say on that thread, I wonder if that dude's quote was chopped short; they may have cut "...side-out"

Licentiousness - this word reminds me of the impeached 42 and all the garbage he tracked into the White House. It sums up his character in a nutshell.

I didn't make it up; but it does fall into the nebulous category of "stuff I heard about once"
