1. Today I painted an octopus with big eyes and eight purple testicles.

2. You can get an electric shock from a python and be killed.

3. That is the end of my project on porkypines. The next one will be on armydildos.

4. My hobby is insest. I specially like aunts.

5. After I saw the school nurse I felt butter, on the hole.
