So come back here Sunday night and watch the Emmys before, after, and during the commercial breaks of Breaking Bad with me!

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,

whipping their hair back and forth

Also I have some TERRIFIC comic relief for us all! It’s a joke I wrote! All by myself!

Knock, knock

Who’s there?

I am.

I am who?

I am the one who knocks.

[Ed. Note: And Breaking Bad comments dominate another week! Great job, everybody. As we approach the final two episodes that will surely make us feel terrible, I’m glad we at least have each other. Have a good weekend, bye! Congrats bye!]

Uh, dumb fucking Neo Nazi assholes? I’m just curious. I don’t think it’s obvious that it’s the kids.

This Week’s Caption Contest Winner

I know whenever I’m in a prank war with my friends I make sure to spend a large amount of money on several kegs of beer, plumbing tubes, 14-15 hidden cameras, 3 large screen monitors, all the necessary cabling and wiring, not to mention the expertise required to replumb an entire house and hook up all those cameras, just so he can be confused for a few minutes and then I can jump out and go “surprise!” and he’ll go “ah. you got me.” Totally worth it.

Kelly, I think I have to report you to Ethics for this. It breaks my heart to think you might be a PTS or even an SP, but if you can’t let Aaron Paul yell “Bitch!” as much as he wants I really doubt that you will make much progress up the Bridge. If you don’t watch your step, you’re going to get sent to RPF and you’ll never get to find out how Breaking Bad ends!
