Not a meme, but don't know where else to post this:

1. I got a dig bick
2. You that read wrong
3. You read that wrong too
4. You checked
5. You smiled
7. You are wondering why you're still this reading this
8. You saw that mistake... right? (On 7)
10. But did you see that I skipped 6?
10. You checked
11. And saw you that I doubled 10 and skipped 9
12. I said saw you, not you saw
13. I also skipped 2
14. You got tricked
15. I'm just wasting your time go back and read other posts

Warning! Not a meme!

I felt sorry for the hypnotist whose show I saw last night. He hypnotized 7 guys on stage (not me), then dropped the mike on his foot & said, "F*ck me". What happened next will haunt me forever.
