After reading some of the comments I now question my faith in humanity and see that illiterates are born more and more each day. A lot of you people need to learn to read over your comments before posting due to the atrocious spelling errors and fragmented sentences which is sad considering the smartphones help u correct those errors. Truly pitiful and sad. Love AAF though! Grew up listening to them.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but you won't die) in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.

The "Annie you okay? You okay? You okay Annie?" part sounds like it would be on a Japanese anime opening theme.

In the words of a fellow opponent of bullying:

Listen bullies, that kid you punched in the hall today? He committed suicide a few seconds ago. That girl you called a slut in class? She's actually a virgin. That boy you called lame? He has to work every night to support his family. That girl you shoved in the hall? She's abused at home. You think you know these people?!?!?! ? ! ? ! Well news flash : YOU DON'T!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! REPOST THIS! 99% of you won't and that's sad. But to those 1% that have
