Hit That Mouth With Soap

Edit: 04/25/09 I created this post after a long night imbibing with friends, so it was perhaps a little too candid. Something set me off in game, so I just logged off and decided to vent. I toned it down a bit for the kiddies. 😉 Parents need to seriously wake up and watch what the hell their kids are …
