  1. The average score is 6.1.

    Therefore, the Neo-Kalashnikovs are below average.

  2. The only thing that is below average is your Christmas Tree Robyn – Lift your game
    I guess your the type of person that tells children Santa doesn’t exist. Or perhaps you don’t
    even celebrate Christmas. Or a crazy Christian that salivates over the best Jew in the world dying by the hands of oppressors. You need to have Christmas and grow up lol

  3. Yeah Robyn. Christmas ornaments.

  4. Jesus Christ Tumeke says:

    Hey at least they got your name right this time Robyn
