Girl 2: “Don’t end a sentence with a preposition.”
Girl 1: “Fine. Where’s your birthday party at, bitch?”

I just saw another one on FB:
“There was champaign”
I don’t know, I prefer champagne. Maybe champaign is the champagne that is offered during a political campaign?

OMG, I just saw a post and it reminded me of something else: You don’t “hatey” or “lovey” something, so please stop emphasizing the wrong vowel. It’s like fingernails on a blackboard. Urg!
