No I haven’t seen your pills meme.

OK. Thank you asl.


Have you ever seen the rain?

No. I have not seen as others saw.

OK. Thanksgiving 2018.


Have you seen this man?

No. Why am I so tired. I haven’t heard that name in years. I haven’t seen any bed bugs. I would not be denied. Don’t ask me about my business.

OK. Thank you animal meme.


Have you seen this wizard poster?

I haven’t seen any star wars movie. I have been trying to reach you.

Would you like me to lie to you now?

Yes, rewards.


Have you ever had a dream?

My hat it has three corners. Thank you after job interview.

What if nobody paid taxes?

My poor heart.

I miss the old Kanye.


What’s the meaning of life?

I have lost my way. And nobody knows it but me.

What does your spleen do?

It is raining tacos . . .






I love my pillow.


Excuse me, have you got the time please?

No. Why are you applying for this position? I haven’t heard that name in years. I haven’t seen a doctor in years. I would not eat them in a box. Don’t ask me why.

OK. Thank you animation.
