  1. Who else is here because they have to watch this video for History or Social Studies class because of quarantine?

  2. “I like taxes” “scoodlepoop” buddy I can’t watch your videos because of the stupid jokes u make

  3. To be fair to the Mesopotamian gods, if you make too much noise while I'm trying to sleep, I also feel like irradicating the entire human race
