Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am Sem Chumbo:

By the shores of Gitche Gumee,
By the shining Big-Sea-Water,
Stood the wigwam of Nokomis,
Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis.
Dark behind it rose the forest,
Rose the black and gloomy pine-trees,
Rose the firs with cones upon them;
Bright before it beat the water,
Beat the clear and sunny water,
Beat the shining Big-Sea-Water.
There the wrinkled old Nokomis
Nursed the little Ayahuasca.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am -Ken:

Thank you Sem. Normally I dont allow cutting and pasting into this space but I shall make a DMT exception for you.

I was referring not to a guest appearance by Laurie Anderson, but the alternate time-line where she played the secretary in every episode.

Hey Ken, if you still want to be 'edgy', you can just play "Glass Houses" in its entirety. I once did so while hosing-out a dung-soaked bum's nest with the aid of half a yuge container of Dr Bronners…ideal listening conditions.

For "rectal itch": try stirring a small amount of high-purity powder cocaine into the gel squeezed from a fresh-cut aloe vera leaf. Coat the first 4-5 inches of the rectum and the area immediately surrounding the anus with the mixture, and leave it undisturbed while is is absorbed (about 10-12 minutes).
Should bring relief in 95%+ of cases.
Good luck.

No, I think that Whitney Cummings, after trying to make it as a comedian, developed an hatred for her audience that burned like a thousand suns, and decided to create something so horrible yet tailored to that audience that its success would confirm that the hate were justified. I think the actors, except for the older sex-joke woman and maybe Garrett Morris, are *told* to do terrible line-readings…but there are 'funny foreigners' and two leads who between them probably excite 80% of the male audience, dollar-store Buffy 'n' Faith.
