  5. In the paragraph you say 'narpoll' and down in the definition you say 'nawpoll'. I'd like to know which one it is, cause I'd like to start calling people this.

  8. I don't see a couple of those words in the paragraph??? Did you edit down, or just give us extra "N" words to broaden our vocabulary? Have a great weekend!
