I choose to believe he is serious because the thought of a troll being that dedicated, so consistently for so long is just too sad to accept.
Do you remember the last ...oh what was that asshole's name? I"m pretty sure he's still at the toxic place. Hamilton maybe? People like to say his real name, something something of somewhere California. Kyle Mercado? (I really don't pay that much attention to that kind of drama) Anyway, he was on his last sock for like 3 years. Link maybe? It was one of the generic reds that isn't here anymore.
