Brittani Nichols is a Los Angeles based comedy person. When she's not tweeting about white people or watching television, she's probably eating pizza. Actually, she's probably doing all three of those things concurrently and when she's not doing THAT, she's sleeping. Brittani also went to Yale and feels weird about mentioning it but wants you to know.
Brittani has written 329 articles for us.
Ha! I submit… Diva cuppers.
But I would not object to being called a rotary telephone.
Could we call lesbian gamers…button mashers?
I thought it was Rumble Pads
“Hey there sexy Button Masher, wanna come back to my rumble pad?”
(said by no one ever, until the next time I get drunk and try to hit on the nearest cute nerd girl)

it’s pokewomen, the search is over
I wanna be the gay-ay-est,
woman there ever was.
To date them is my real test.
To wife them is my cause.
I will travel across the land,
Searching far and wide.
Each Pokewoman to understand
The power that’s inside
Pokewomen, (gotta date them all) its you and me
I know its my destiny
Pokewoman, oh, you’re my girl friend
In a world we must defend
Pokewomen, (gotta date them all) a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me and I’ll teach you
(Po-ke-wo-man!) Gotta catch ’em all
*sung with utmost enthusiasm*

This is TOO FREAKY! I was JUST reading a fanfiction from all the way back in 2012, and in it Brittany called Santana a toaster strudel. Like literally not even a minute ago I was reading this thing.
See here! I have proof!
“Have fun freezing your asses off,” Santana called after us.
“Good luck becoming a toaster strudel,” I shouted.
“That doesn’t make any sense,” Santana called back.
“Yes, it does.” It totally did. Because toaster strudels were delicious.

From the theories of medieval straight people… Thigh-fencers and coffin-bangers.

I vote for toaster strudel because Gretchen Weiners.
This one’s just a variation, how about Pussy Chatter? Perhaps better if you’re not from the US.
