Let me see your lighter.

We should start a band

called Twisted Erection.

This is some good weed, man.

Hell yeah, man and a good joint.

Rolled by moi, oh!

Caught the fox.

Where you going you

little sh*t ass?

F*** you, Hom.

F*** me?

Eat some dirt.

F***in' pig.

We weren't even doing anything.

Then why'd you run?

I don't know.

Must have been doin' something.

I like your mother,

I'm taking you home.

You gotta stop this sh*t

and never run from me again.

I brought him home.

Adam, you okay, sweetie?

Yeah, mom, I'm fine.

Alright, listen,

go to bed, okay?

Night, Adam.

Was having Adam a hard birth?

Did he not want to come out?

Did he want to

stay inside of you?

Did you have to

have an episiotomy?

When you have

an episiotomy the vaginal

canal is about this

close to the anus.

And if they cut

too much, you know,

you can get all

kinds of infections.

No, man, he was a natural birth.

There was really

almost no labor.

Well, my mother has

to have an episiotomy.

They had to rip her open

because I didn't wanna come out.

And my father, he'd get

all drunk and he'd yell

at my mother

because that she had

me her hole wasn't

tight anymore.

Oh, listen, thanks

for bringing him home.

Oh, yeah, no problem.



Hey, Vossie.

Good morning, step up, come on.


Good morning.

Come on, BT, wake

up the birthday boy.

Come on, hey, sweetie,

it's time to get up.

Come on birthday boy.




Good morning.


So, um, what was

going on last night?

Um, me and Jessie

was just walking

and we saw them come

up behind us with

their lights on and we

just started running.

But we got to, like,

the ditch and I turned

and I guess Jessie

went straight.

And I just felt

somebody behind me,

tackled me, and it was

him, he tackled me.

What do you mean he tackled you?

I was running and he just came

up behind me and jumped at me.

I know why he was stopping you.

He's stopping you because

he thinks you're a wetback.



That sucks.

I don't ever see

the white kids getting

pulled over by border patrol.

Oh, Adam, I don't like it.

You gotta be careful.

I mean, I know you're

not doing anything wrong,

but just don't give them any

kind of excuse to do that

or to have any contact with you.

Those guys just seem like

they're outta control.

They do whatever they want.

Alright, sweetie,

listen, you gotta get up.

You gotta get up now,

you've got some chores to do

and then you gotta go to school.


There you go.

Good morning Marfa High School,

please stand for our

pledges to our flags.

We will begin with our pledge

to the United States flag.

I pledge allegiance to the flag,

of the United States of America,

and to the Republic

for which it stands,

one nation under

God, indivisible,

with liberty and

justice for all.

And now we

will honor the Texas flag.

Honor the Texas flag,

I pledge allegiance

to thee, Texas,

one state under God,

one and indivisible.

Thank you, you may be seated.

This morning we just have

a couple of announcements.

First of all, teachers,

you are reminded that you

need to post attendance

within the first

10 minutes of each

class period today.

And the second

announcement of the day is

a congratulations to

our UIL Academic as we put the whippin'

on Crane and Kermit

yesterday in the first

half of the competition.

We lead the district

by over 100 points,

so way to go, let's finish

tomorrow up with a championship

and everybody have a

great day, thank you.

So, the people have taken

Marie Antoinette and King
