6. The five exclamation marks definitely help…


7. Whoever made this should’ve listened to their own advice meme.

10. The biggest crime here is the word itself.



11. NEVER jump on a hashtag before knowing what it’s about…


12. Stop. It.



13. They’re not fluent in youth culture, they’re just dabbling.



14. This study material l00ks up 2 d8.
