Old-English-D

darylhighwind  asked:

HC: one of them totally owns something with either the old English "D" or "Made in Detroit" on it.

XD I’m sorry I was just thinking that “the old English D” would be a terrible nickname for a penis

I feel like Phichit would get matching “Made in Detroit” booty shorts for him and Yuuri. Yuuri of course only wears them as pajamas but has to physically restrain Phichit for wearing his pair out in public

anonymous asked:

Could you do a post about what 'Germany' is called in all other languages? Because honestly some of the names people came up with for us is ridiculous.

Haha, good idea, sure I will!
