Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.


If someone asked why it was us, why we were the bottom of the barrel, I'd say, "Open your eyes, dumbass."  Nothing about us is right.  We're the wrongest kids you've ever seen.  Our faces are wrong with zits, we have the wrong hair, the wrong clothes, and I think that we might be ugly.  Our families are wrong because none of us are rich, our bodies are wrong because we suck at sports, and there's something really wrong with all of our personalities, because nobody likes us, not even the teachers. Teachers make fun of us too, and think we don't notice.
