I Guess I Could Do­nate the One from My Pri­vate Col­lec­tion

Girl #1: Oh, man, I still have to con­tribute mon­ey for the grad gift.
Girl #2: Yeah, I had to do that yes­ter­day.
Girl #1: What sucks is that you have no say as to how the gift is used. I mean, a por­trait of Pro­fes­sor Er­ick­son* is nice, but a stat­ue of Pro­fes­sor Er­ick­son fight­ing a bear… Now that would be amaz­ing!

And Then Kill Them All, Ex­e­cu­tion Style!

Girl: I love this new tooth­paste I got. It has green tea in it and tastes ab­solute­ly fan­tas­tic. It feels like there’s a tea par­ty go­ing on in my mouth, and I just want to in­vite my ted­dy bears or some­thing!
