    It was delicious... it tasted like your mother.

    You trapped yourself in that one, son.

    Ladies love the taste of my jizz. I put it in my girl's corn flakes.

    the White House managed to turn what should have been a moment of celebration for the Dalai Lama's supporters in the United States and worldwide into a stunning display of disrespect. Apparently someone forgot to move an enormous pile of garbage from the service entrance that the Dalai Lama used to exit the White House yesterday, so the first image that the assembled press corps snapped was of him literally next to a huge mound of rubbish. Classy.

    And, you should study your plurals... because I could take a couple of writing courses, instead of just one "writing course".

    What you quoted is correct...

    I am not fucked, yes that is present tense.
    I did get fucked by your moms, yes that happened last night.
    Your mom should call me up, because I didn't catch her number jumping out of the window.

    Everybody plays the fool, sometimes...
    there's no exception to the rule... listen, baby!
    It may be factual...
    It may be cruel...
    I ain't lyyyyyyinnnnnnnnnnn

    外交部发言人马朝旭美国东部时间2月18日就美国总统会见达赖发表谈话。

    美方无视中方多次严正交涉,执意安排美国总统奥巴马在白宫地图室会见达赖,美国务卿希拉里·克林顿也于同日会见。美方的行为严重干涉中国内政,严重伤害中国人民的民族感情,严重损害中美关系。中国外交部副部长崔天凯已召见美驻华大使洪博培提出严正交涉。

    西藏是中国领土神圣不可分割的一部分,西藏事务纯属中国内政。中方坚决反对任何国家的领导人和政府官员以任何形式会见达赖,坚决反对任何国家、任何人以任何借口利用达赖问题干涉中国内政。达赖几十年的言行表明,他不是一个单纯的宗教人士,而是打着宗教旗号长期从事反华分裂活动的政治流亡者。美方允许达赖窜访美国并安排领导人和其他政要会见,严重违背国际关系基本准则,违反中美三个联合公报和《中美联合声明》确定的原则,违背美国政府多次重申的承认西藏是中国一部分,不支持“西藏独立”的承诺。中方对此表示强烈不满和坚决反对。

    中国政府和人民捍卫国家主权和领土完整的决心是坚定不移的,任何人企图利用达赖问题干涉中国内政都是不会得逞的。中方要求美方认真对待中方立场,立即采取有效措施消除恶劣影响,停止纵容和支持“藏独”反华分裂势力,停止干涉中国内政,以实际行动维护中美关系健康稳定发展。

    Ka Maluhia o ka "I."
