and you can “pop” a shite thread into a virtual bin


just good pop

Someone recently suggested that their wifi password was 2444666668888888101010101010101010, which when spoken is "one two, three four, five six, seven eight, nine ten’


Yes, if you are a wrestler you can get a “great pop”

Pop to the shops for a tin of pop


No, YOU pop to the shops for a tin of pop


I like auto-antonyms. GBOL:
