    A third 5 chucked willy nilly for one of the big Jamaican movies? Jesus christ any more or this and I'll be getting a few bob marley posters purchased off amazon and speaking like Chet Hanks. Gonna lose me head go Jamaica. Some some zoots. Get dreads, argue that it isn't cultural appropriation and say how Skrillex isn't a cunt that ruined dub and dubstep. I need to be careful.
