Robert Morgan says:

I laughed from the very first line,
What it do, COMRADES?

Robert Morgan says:

4:17 wow, that’s actually a really deep, relevatory observation.
Revolutions are almost always portrayed as moving from one thing to the next in that context, but every other usage does mean ending up right where you started every time.

Please make a review of Milan Kundera’s Unbearable Lightness of Being

I have a few books you should look at JM Barrie’s Peter Pan, Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan, and Moon Over Manifest by Claire Vanderpool. Please

Nathaniel Zavala says:

I am a communist. I am very happy that you did not say “this book shows how communism doesn’t work”, but instead “this book shows the flaws of the USSR”. The Soviet Union was never communist.
I love you Thug Notes! Workers of the world, unite!

CoffeeCupGoodness says:

Quick question: Is this guy a vampire? Every time he shows his teeth I start wishing I had some garlic with me!!

Future Reach says:

Animal Farm is so much more than just a book. The themes, ideas and concepts explored in this novel are why its such an essential read. There’s reading for pleasure and then there’s reading for necessity. Animal Farm needs to be read.

Andrew_O'Mara says:

Most pissed off I’ve ever been about the ending to a book.

Spoonerism Animal Form, Stalin (Russian language mean man of steel) form of raw material of iron smelting called PIG iron communist have slang pinko.

Some kind transformation.

Sacha Josgray says:

These are amazing. Great work.

MadZuri says:

So… “more equal” is the corrupt form of the law that only borrows the word “equal” but has nothing to do with the concept at all. It is just the excuse one group uses to oppress another group… that sounds really familiar. It’s just itching my brain. Where have I heard of a group saying over and over again that all they want is “more equality for _ “?

Joe Bob says:
