If you want to tiki but you cannot do the taki then you cannot tiki taki with me! And when you say tiki but you really mean the taki then you must consult a dictionary!

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2009 8:43 PM

What is that supposed to mean? "Raw" That is dumb!

hehehehehehehehehe. arctic monkeys. monkeys living in the arctic cold. hehehehhehehe. they are like, "oh! I am cold! I am a monkey!" hehehe. >_<

For you, 9:04.

RAW (adj):

1. Uncooked: raw meat.
2.
a. Being in a natural condition; not processed or refined: raw wool. See Synonyms at crude.
b. Not finished, covered, or coated: raw wood. See Synonyms at rude.
c. Not having been subjected to adjustment, treatment, or analysis: raw data; the raw cost of production.
3. Untrained and inexperienced: raw recruits.
4. Recently finished; fresh: raw plaster.
5. Having subcutaneous tissue exposed: a raw wound.
6. Inflamed; sore: a raw throat.
7. Unpleasantly damp and chilly: raw weather.
8. Cruel and unfair: a raw punishment.
9. Outspoken; crude: a raw portrayal of truth.
10. Powerfully impressive; stark: raw beauty; raw talent.
11. Nude; naked.

I can easily pick 5 definitions of "raw" above that suit the arctic monkeys. Now go away and study the dictionary before you bother posting assinine comments here again.

To study dictionary is tedious indulgence, one simply has to refer to it, thus the name "reference".

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2009 10:30 PM

Okay Arctic Monkey's are NOT raw.... The Stooges are Raw...

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2009 10:46 PM

That guy who listed dictionary definitions is the coolest.

I hope 10:17 is being clever with his spelling of "assinine." If not, he is truly asinine.
