We would know because I would know the correct spelling.
A whack is what makes things work correctly. Look it up.

They're part of the stage.
It's soft and touchable.
Probably not.
For the same reason trousers is singular. Panties is not plural.
Because a miracle could occur.
Because I decreed it.
Because it's what God wants us to do.
The towel might touch the floor and get dog hair on it. Besides, if you dry your butt crack, oooooo – wash the towel.
It does. That's not glue that comes out. It's paste eaten by elementary school children and then regurgitated into the glue bottle.

I'm sorry, but I have no questions. Answers only here.
