“So what picture should I use for the post aboutOH SHIT YES!” -Me, five minutes ago.


Wow. It is not a good year to be the boss of a Seinfeld character. First the threat of amputation drove Daniel Von Bargen to an unsuccessful suicide attempt, and now kidney failure has taken Mr. Pitt himself, Ian Abercrombie, at the tender age of 77. Sleep with one eye open, J. Patrick McCormack!

It must suck to be an actor who’s most well-known role is that of a completely unlikable manchild like Mr. Pitt. Thankfully most people know me best from my turn as Rizzo, the beloved leader of the Pink Ladies, in my high school’s production of Grease. A lot of people said that a boy shouldn’t have been cast in the role to begin with, but when that curtain rose my angelic falsetto and baby-smooth gams made those parents’ groups look foolish.
