Back in April I wrote about the large group of kids that hangs out next door, "I don't mind the screaming so much, kids gotta play."

I've changed my mind.

They are always out there. Nearly a dozen of them. They're usually situated all over the apartment complex, separate groups hanging out on each level of the back porch, like it's the needlessly elaborate set of a terrible Broadway musical where everyone screams all the time.

The noise wouldn't be so bad, if they weren't constantly yelling such foul things at each other. They're obsessed with calling each other "fagots." It would be impossible for me to exaggerate how much they yell that word.

10 Year Old Kid Playing Soccer: If you got hit in the nuts you would be hurtin' and... Hey! If you got hit in the nuts you'd be hurtin' and... have AIDS!

It's like some horrible bizzaro production of RENT (starring children) over there.

I can't believe I'm going to say this but "faggots" is spelled with two g's.

Your last quotation from those lovely children reminded me of the Team America: World Police RENT spoof.

I thought so. But spellcheck was certain it had 1 g.

The British spelling is 'fagot'.

I'm serious.
