Oxford Dictionary Term 4

This one came as a surprise. Guess what:

Vandal (definition #2):
a member of a Germanic people that ravaged Gaul, Spain, and North Africa in the 4–5th centuries and sacked Rome in 455.  (Latin) Vandalus, of Germanic origin. 

... it wasn't until the 17th century that the term applied to a destroyer of properties. 

Do you know what this means? I'M A VANDAL! Ahahahhahaha

You could almost be quoting the musical "Oklahoma." There's a song in there that says "it's a scandal! it's an outrage!"

Maybe, but Abu plays no part in that one.
