look up any word, like pretty face challenge:
 
1.
love you have for a person that is so deep and feels like it should last forever, but it can't for some complicated, unfair reason. So when you have only a certain amount time left with the person you love, you know that it is tainted love. because although you would risk your life for them and think of them all the time (even in your dreams), you can't be with them forever.

it is love, actually.

The foreign tradition of bending over and having a girl lick your grundle. For best results the girl should WANT to be licking your grundle; no one wants half-assed grundle work done. After all, it’s “tainted love”, not “tainted like”.
What are you so happy about?

Guy #1: I SHOULDA KNEW IT when I saw she had a fat ass and paid for her generic menthols with food stamps! I hate that shit! Why is it okay for black men to do white chicks but them people go all crazy when we do black chicks?
