Is there ever any set of people crazier than students? Imagine, to think it was all a prank. Give it to these guys, they’ve got courage.
When I first saw the whole thing going viral on social media, my heart was doing ‘gbim gbim” with all the twitter monsters going about with their salvages on how my hometown is full of local and fashion insensitive people.
What a glad tiding this news brought. Anybody who knows the official handles of these guys should drop in the comment box. The kokocampus team has a small “package” for them.
