Real earthy stuff. Hilarious too! - OZZIEBOB, 2007-10-11: 18:00:00

PS: A bit more earthy stuff: I trying to come up with this verboticism, found an earthy, gritty Kentish dialect word, "sculch" referring to the unwholesome things children like to eat. I guess after teragrubbing and sculching some not so yumgum, it's terregurgitation that follows. - OZZIEBOB, 2007-10-11: 18:26:00
