Re: Today in stupid



One of the top comments:
I considered moving to New Zealand once, and then the application asked "Have you ever made a racist comment?". I decided it was not the country for me.
Geez, wtf.

Today in stupid

I am creating this topic since I don't want to create a new one for every article I link... others feel free to post the same in here, for any articles which you consider do not warrant a new thread. Seems Corbyn has cucked out . I would normally say seeing Labour being harangued with such accusatio...
