I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don't care about clever I don't care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

    Hmmm the 27 shouters below who have copied the first shout in the series obviously do have a problem saying what is on their minds. Hence the copycat shouts.
