Bill Hicks on Drugs

“If you want to understand a society, take a good look at the drugs it uses. And what can this tell you about American culture? Well, look at the drugs we use.

Leslie Jones on Texting

“Texting has ruined my life. I can’t stop texting. It’s hard not to text, ‘You is a bitch!’ ‘Okay, I’m sorry for calling you a bitch.’ ‘Did you get my last text?’ ‘Are you getting any of these texts?’ ‘Are you getting any of these texts, bitch?’ I’m 10 texts in now.

Brian Regan on Pop-Tarts
