  1. you crazy kids gave me a comment award for my ridiculous pun; i can’t believe it.

    i can put this on my cv right? right.

  2. Hmm I don’t know, I think Carmen Sandiego proclaiming her undying love for me (I’m paraphrasing) might be worthy of an award. But that’s just me.

    • DOIT

      And I’ve trying to hold back it back, but…that silly boy high heels aren’t “nice shoes” they’re murder shoes.

      • FOR REAL THOUGH. Also I am 5′ 10″ and do not like to feel like a giraffe.

        Lesbians would’ve liked my converse. I should’ve known then.

  3. See, mom? My ad won an award! Those six month in marketing school were totally worth it!
