@SimonPetrikov, I agree he was a jerk but I never understood why people get so angry about it. Back home you get beat for not doing your homework and roasted in front of the class for not paying attention or giving stupid answers. And that's just the standard stuff.

@SimonPetrikov, I’d think it’s more for the fact that looks just like his dad and acts like a mix.
Heck. You ever caught that before? It’s rough.
