@bevrockin With the firewolves? ugghhh. my heart.
THAT is why I love that show. It is a silly little thing where something will happen like every 3 episodes and I'll go "Oh! My heart!"
Seriously, I cannot talk about the Ice King's back story. Too sad. Now I'm thinking about it. SAAAD.
@Miss Maszkerádi You are the Pizza Child foretold in the legends! ALL HAIL PIZZA CHILD!
@A. Louise Yeah, BUY THIS - BECAUSE you are a woman!" is a pretty deep well advertising goes to for... almost everything even vaguely lady related. Booze especially.
If someone out there isn't writing a thoughtful essay on booze consumption and gender stereotypes, they should be. I'll never forget ordering a bourbon neat at a bar and having the guy next to me say "wow... now I feel like a total pussy." This was last year. Apparently ladies don't drink bourbon. Or something. STICK TO YOUR APPLETINIS, LADY BOOZEHOUNDS!

@RK Fire True, I apologize. Maryland shall be spared in my cross-country road trip to explain to the masses that they are pronouncing Bowie Knife incorrectly and to mend their ways.
@Hiroine Protagonist Yeah, I'll be over here enjoying the hell out of a Chicago dog with the other happy fatties. Or, rather, normal people who love delicious things and don't see food as a thing to be carefully purchased with cardio.
@coolallison The original piece apparently didn't make the Jim Bowie/Bowie knife connection and seemed flummoxed that only Texas and DC used "Boo-wie." DUDE'S NAME IS BOO-WIE. IT IS A BOO-WIE KNIFE, Y'ALL!
This is like the angst caused by someone being wrong on the internet but like times A THOUSAND. It's going to take me so long to drive around and correct the rest of the country...
@harebell I don't know, though, "Money isn't really that important" is a sentiment I see bandied about an awful lot by people who haven't had trouble making rent. Or buying food.
ETA: which is not to say that's the case in THIS case, but it's a phrase that seems to track with a certain level of privilege. I'm saying this badly. I'm the worst.
Can we talk about this part?
"Money Isn’t Really That Important and Doesn’t Make Anyone All That Happier"
Because I can tell you that LOTS of money doesn't necessarily make you happy, but enough money SURE fucking helps and it is ACTUALLY important. It's nice when you reach a point where having to make a $1000 car repair doesn't send you spiraling into a financial crisis. Like, where are these joyous assholes who don't mind getting evicted?
@Lumpy Space Princess Thanks to your (amazing) screen name, my brain auto-read this comment in LSP's voice and it was A MILLION TIMES amazing. Especially the last line.
