Insists on it, lest one be left out of the "current shit," as David Axelrod would say."

Something Awful: How to Fake It

f someone quite reasonably complains that the Ying Yang Twins are medically verifiable retards, scold them as if they’ve just called Martin Luther King Jr. an ape.

Red Sweater Blog - MacBook Pro: The Whining User

Anybody who knows me or reads this blog has probably started to notice a distinctly unpleasant noise coming out of my office in Somerville, MA. What’s that sound? It’s human whine.
