** Two if Jerry Springer comes on to the show- three if you realize the cast effectively trolled him speechless by refusing to let him talk during the skit he was involved in- and that deserves a round of applause for [[TakeThat stitching up an asshole's bullshit dispenser.]] Kiss your girlfriend if you laughed at that one.
