I thought it would be fun to get one of those "meme" things going -- they're like trying to get a "wave" going at a baseball game, right? Those always look like fun, but whenever I start standing up and down, yelling and waving my arms, the crowd freaks the fuck out and flees and the next thing I know, The Man is trying to shove an Oxygen Destroyer down my throat or up my ass. So, here's the next thing for me!
