Who is the biggest liar?: Um...probably Austin? I'm sure he's told a few nasty lies in his day.

Who is the biggest troll?: In the traditional definition of a troll, Taylor. Definitely Taylor. That boy has confused limbs for days.

Wow. There are way too many. If they have a color for "into hairy muscular middle eastern men" then that's mine.

Fun, laughs, or good time?: Fun. Duh.
