Amazing insight into pathetic people!
5 December 2019 | by xcops-1See all my reviews

Wow well i actually enjoyed it but just because it made me realise that when a bunch of pathetic people get together in a field and make up their own rules, there really no bounds to how sad and pathetic a bunch of people can get.

I 100% guarantee you that this ridiculous joke will last a couple of years max and then all the people will go back to normal life.

Sad sad sad. Really? Yes!
