Ooops, Cooler Than Me.
This was my FAVORITE song last Spring. Must be 80’s reminiscent....
This thread beguiled me into spending a frustrating few minutes trying to think of how to use the verb in a topical sentence! However, I did enjoy the experience. :)

No, I heard of the Gypsy Wedding show when it inspired Kate Moss to get married. I wiah I could see the show, because the only time I see gypsies, they are begging on the subways or leaving trahed campsites near the train tracks.
Oh that’s right.....ICE COLD!
pretty much just white trash on stilts!
do they have gypsies in Italy? i just recall the indian looking types hawking pashmina scarves and umbrellas near subway stops.
