I ran away once, and he just had the police take me back to my sensei. He didn’t even call. I spent half my childhood wondering what I’d done that made him just dump me at the train station and walk away, just seeing his back retreating over and over again in every fucking nightmare! Why wasn’t I good enough? [...] And then he turns around and raises Ayanami?! Why?! Why did he abandon me and take her?!”

Years ago, amateur Indiana biochemists went through the Jackson's garbage in an attempt to create a second Michael out of food scraps and discarded maxi pads. LaToya Jackson was the shrieking and unkillable result of that experiment... LaToya spends most of her time in this video getting berated by Gay. Gay Gasper is a muscle-bound sack of slave driving intensity and her three assistants are all clearly professional aerobics instructors. LaToya's contribution is almost all panting while she struggles to not fall behind. It's kind of tragic. After all, the last thing LaToya Jackson needed was to be in one more damn room full of people where she was the least talented one.

Stephen Baldwin is the youngest of the Baldwin brothers, and most famous for his appearance in The Usual Suspects, evangelical Christianity and proselytizing, political activism (especially for his campaigns against adult bookstores) and for having a tattoo on his left shoulder of the initials “HM” for Hannah Montana.

He has also been (of course) in financial trouble, and since 2009, a website has been soliciting donations on Baldwin's behalf, stating that “because of this convictions [sic] it has caused him the loss of many jobs,” and that “he deserves hundreds of millions for his Job-like faithfulness in the face of relentless loss and persecution... It is interesting to see what happens when you take even the trappings of a working mind away and get Stephen Baldwin.

In exchange for Kim’s fame, I’ll sell you the souls of my other less-useful children, like Rob, Khloe, Kourtney, Rob. Did I mention Rob?'
Michael K., "Kim Kardashian Klaims She Used To Pray For Smaller Boobs"

"I love [my kid] so much, you know? I really do. That's why I'm just gonna have one. 'Cause if you have more than one kid, then you gotta decide which one you like better, that's always mean. Oh, it's true. Parents are always like, 'Oh, we like 'em all the same!' [dismissive laugh] No you don't! Oh, you love 'em all, of course, but there's always that one kid, y'know... if he got lost... [shrug] No, you'll look for him... not right away..."
