This is a tribute to the most useless things in my life. Things like a white crayon, or my remote controls. I encourage you all to do the same in response. It can be interesting. To my white crayon, I don’t know why I need you. I can only use you on black paper and I have no black paper. I have 47 other crayons in my box that I can use on plain white paper. I don’t need you but they put you in the box anyway. I understand life can get pretty dull for you, sitting in the crayon box, watching…

This shit was like crack to me when I was a kid and for the life of me, I can't figure out why. My parents would buy me a new Color Forms and they wouldn't see me for the rest of the night.
