He said, “I doubt that’s possible,” which was really offensive. I got so upset I vomited my dinner on their picnic blanket and, because of that rude heterosexual, I didn’t even get to see Cyndi’s amazing version of “She Bop”; Introducing Sheldon Greenbriar: Bring back “Becker” — stat!

Thanks to WordPress for featuring the Malcontent in today’s edition of Freshly Pressed. (And thanks to Chamblee54 for the heads-up.) Now for some non-holiday cheer:
