somebody should write an essay comparing and contrasting tina from bob’s burgers and meg from family guy and explain why tina hit the mark for respectfully portraying the awkward teenage years and why meg is a huge fucking insensitive joke that isn’t even funny

Tina is a character, Meg is a punchline. 

wow that’s a pretty concise essay

the catholic church gives wine to 7 year olds but gay marriage is wrong

I mean this is totally out of context but is technically true. It is believed to be the blood of god and they are only given 1 tiny sip once a week but otherwise this is totally correct.

the catholic church encourages 7 year olds to drink blood every week but gay marriage is wrong

Siblings and Tumblr

My little brother threw a Squirtle action figure at me and busted my lip once. When I told my friends about it at school one of them yelled “Squirtle used tackle, it’s super effective!”

Aww how cute

When we were in middle school, my older brother used to disco dance on table tops for quarters. Yes i just typed those words. Fast forward several years. I am at a job interview. While I am discussing the various blahdidy blah of minimum wage with the hiring manager, the manager on shift that day comes running up to me and shouts “OMG! I knew it! You’re disco-boy’s sister!”
I got the job.

Halloweenish 2007(?) ifrakinglovepink and I picked up my brother at his house in rural VA, to just drive around and do whatever. Once we got into town my brother changed his mind about hanging out with us. He waited till we got to a stop light, screamed “Freedom!”, dove out of the car, and ran about 6 miles home.

Some time after my brother moved out on his own, but while I was still in school, my brother came over during the middle of the day (a 40 minute drive). He came through a locked door, that we had never given him a key to. Without stopping to say a word to anyone he marched straight into the kitchen, shoved a giant wad of pot into his mouth, chugged half a bottle of ranch dressing He then proclaimed that his “salad was very dry” and left.

Once upon a time, on a road trip to D.C., my brother was sent into a gas station to ‘ask directions real quick’. We all saw him walk into the gas station but not come out. He returned, about 15 minutes later, from the other direction, wearing a different shirt than the one he had on when he left, carrying a Styrofoam container with 2 lbs of cooked bacon + an eggroll in it, and he hadn’t gotten directions.

Below you will find a photo of the young man in question, slowly roasting himself over an open flame.

Ifrakinglovepink has asked me to clarify squirtle-bro and disco-boy are different people, and that neither she nor squirtle-bro are related to disco-boy in any way.



How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?

Oh man.

I loved GotG, but this is fantastic and true.

Dead hungry? (Yes that’s a hearst going round the drive thru!)

Dead hungry? (Yes that’s a hearst going round the drive thru!)

Hailing from the same era of television that made Joss Whedon and Aaron Sorkin into icons, ‘Gilmore Girls’ featured many of the same qualities that made ‘Buffy’ and ‘West Wing’ so beloved — great actors, quality production values and dialogue so distinctive that you could pick it out of a line-up, blindfolded. And that came directly from series showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino (who created the show with her husband Dan).

While not necessarily everyone’s taste, the speed-talking and pop culture references made sure that ‘Gilmore Girls’ sounded like nothing else on television, and proved Sherman-Palladino’s importance to the show when, after her departure at the end of Season 6, the series struggled to recapture her voice. When discussing the history of auteur television, Sherman-Palladino’s name frankly does not come up enough, and that’s a shame.


When I was little I thought being an adult meant not having a bed time but I’ve come to realize that it just means being in charge of my own bed time and it turns out that I am not equipped to handle that responsibility.
