Quotes on works
"Since 1999 I've been carrying a blue pill in my pocket, holding onto it for the moment when I'd truly need it. The pill, I was told, would instantly erase the memory of any movie ó but just the one movie, just the one time. I was tempted to take that pill after Freddy Got Fingered. I had the pill in hand as I walked out of every other Adam Sandler movie of the last decade. But I hung on to it, knowing something even worse was going to come my way one day. Midway through Movie 43, I knew the day had come. As the credits rolled with the inevitable blooper scenes of actors breaking character and inexplicably laughing when nothing funny is going on, I swallowed that pill, hoping to erase instantly all mental images of what had just transpired. It didn't work. The !&$@*! thing didn't work!"

"Oh, Shoe, you know that given my druthers Iíd prefer not to contemplate the twisted chimeric anatomy of your bird-person characters, right? Especially when it comes to the naughty parts.

"Whatís that? Youíve never heard of this? Are you sure? Certain you arenít just like me and saw it years back and your brain short-circuited and said, 'No, we are not wasting any space in the hippocampus on this'? Well, then weíre all going to suffer through this together."
"WARNING: Watching this video of Barbara Walters talking about fucking her dusty babawawa biscuit with a vibrator named Selfie on The View may be harmful to your health. Uncommon but serious side effects of viewing this video may include:
Filing for divorce from the area of the brain that holds memories, a shame erection, thoughts of suicide (following shame erection), anti-arousal (also known as Sahara Syndrome), a written complaint from your gag reflex, the condition known as Nope Face, bargaining with a higher power for the existence of Men In Black mind-erase things. If you experience a sudden loss in vision, do not be alarmed; it is common for parts of your body to peace the fuck out during a traumatic event.
Barbara, Iím happy youíre (shudder) masturbating, but we donít need to know anymore about Selfie. We donít need to know what kind it is, where you bought it, where you use it, or who youíre using it to. But if I had to guess, itís probably an old picture of Calvin Coolidge, right? No, wait, donít answer that."
