Tycoons Run Type

Evil LogoShifts
Five Futurist Italia
Leaps from lines
To stabbing Freu
Frau falls and
!is apathetic I?
Halves herd apa
Thee is the true
Esta face of Lilith
Envui is Judaic
Protestant exis
Tant protests two
Much me Gothe
Think tank machis
Mo Word splices
To Saladism Kalvin
Kannibalize Luther
Quickly or lawlash
Knashatish howl
Yuppies use the
The term trash
Secular purity
Is my sly fit bitch
ShangriLawsaltfash
To sign negative
Capitalist whirls
Weltanschauung
Views from Pisa
Kneel in-fraternal
Sterilization form
Infantilized popes
