Weekly Debate

Last week we asked if Jigsaw is considered a murderer. The results were overwhelmingly in favor of yes, despite a few outliers who feel he's just being really helpful. The verdict: Hell yes he's a murderer, how is this even a question?

This week "How do you pronounce the word aunt - awent, or ant?"
