Elastic is not a nounFollow

Elastic is an adjective, why do people talk about "elastic" as if it is a substance, it is a property, elastic bands are bands that are elastic, they are not bands made out of elastic.

totem was standing there with a big black *****, smiling like he just enjoyed licking the business end of the massive meat in his hand

the hot chick laughed at totem and slapped him. she did me right there and i then i left

totem said he wishes he could do her like that, but he is *** and can not get it up unless he had his big black *****
