“Stop Playing My Dane Cook YouTubes During This Funeral? Who Are You, Pol Pot?”
SEK and MZS have already said what needs to be said about Anil Dash’s defense of people being assholes in movie theaters on the merits. But like our correspondent from the top of Manhattan Chase, I just can’t get past this sentence, one of the most remarkable on this or any internet:
