 Quote of the Day

"I went to my nephew's birthday party and they had a pinata of that Shrek donkey. And I know what would be awesome is to take down that pinata, take out all that disgusting candy, and go to the store and instead by real chicken hearts and intestines, put it in there so that when the kid hits it and all that shit falls out of it I get to run up to him and yell, 'Oh my God, what did you do?!'"
- Christina Pazsitsky
