Glad I can interrupt my spouse reading Kurt Vonnegut’s Hocus Pocus in bed by loudly asking Austin Powers lore questions

I think the only true time I liked birdsite was when it turned out the PM put his member in a pig mouth

I made the mistake of mentioning to a writer that the seventh season of buffy has an evil preacher character they were looking for as a template and now I have to watch it RIP

VILLAIN: i will now electrocute your meat until you die, mr bond.
