  1. Well, Andy, I don't need to be crying on a Friday afternoon in my office. The story with the giraffe saying goodbye to its caretaker was too much--beautiful, but too buch.

  2. Just after the giraffe said goodbye to its zookeeper, they slaughtered it and fed it to the lions.

  5. There's just something about Jake Shears. He's not particularly good-looking but I just want to lick him all over!

    Oh, no. That's horrible. What a sad queen I am going home this evening.

  7. The news about The Comeback almost counters the news about White Collar.

    I can't even watch the giraffe thing. Seen it posted elsewhere and have no pressing need to start crying.

  8. If there's any justice in this world, Detox iCunt would be cast as lead antagonist of the misfits in the upcoming movie "Jem & the Holograms"

  9. I loved The Comeback! I was always surprised it lasted only one season so this is great news. Lisa Kudrow was masterful at playing the humor in a character who was constantly humiliated that made you laugh at her but also empathize.

  10. Giraffes are smart enough to recognize individual humans. Whether they can tell you're sick or not is doubtful.
