Points lost for capitalizing Arthur, but not God. Come on, School of Divinity. Don’t get caught up in the nihilism of today’s emoji-driven youth.

Wouldn’t “Oh God” be blasphemy?


#6

God damn your ridiculous questions!

Also, Daryl using a crossbow on The Walking Dead is one of the only things that makes much sense about that damned show. If you’re going to use a projectile weapon why wouldn’t you go with the silent option?
