BASTARD FACT0RY Forums is the New Lambgoat

Somebody mentioned www.BASTARDFACT0RY.com in here last week... they were all arguing about the place ... Well I joined it, it's an 'Anything' goes messageboard!!

Mayhem & mass chaos reigns... its like not having protective glasses to view an eclipse so you put sunscreen on your eyeballs, which lands you in the eye clinic requiring medical care.

If ozzy ozzborn is The Godfather of hard metal then Las Ulrr is the creepy uncle spinning his signature, shriveled lime-green dingus like helicopter for u when he stays in ur room while visiting for thanksgiving or after getting out of jail. U clap to the beat as he spins faster and faster, ur smile growing bigger and bigger. W/o missing a spin he goes to cram his wrinkled fist up his favorite cavity. 'It's too risky!' U shout but he lands a perfect cram, in and out he spins and crams like a pro

Okay, now do and justice for all and add the fcking bass back in

8/29/2017 5:50:05 PM
They scrapped the bass because idiot Jazzy Newjack couldn't learn the parts and Jam and Laz said 'ok we gotta go, we trustin u-u can do the parts without us rite" "oh ya sure anything u say boss, Jam" and then when it was time he freaked out, cramming his bass string straight up and out his jerk like a needle. This was all in 'SOME KIND OF A MONSTER' extras. The blood leaked onto they marble floors and I think it was Laz that licked it up if not mistaken?

MTV shot pop sensation 'Katy perry :)' into space for 2017 VMA video music award. She broadcast live from the moon, and also mars. Brandishing a moon man statue as she slid it in and out her bleached lime green jerk. "Hello earth!" She croon as she look down from the stars. "In and out! In and out!" The crowd chants as she slide the statue up and down her favorite cavity. Snoop do gg introduce the next nominees to the tune of 5 million weed plants
