My New Favorite Blog

Check out my new favorite blog.
Coming in at #44 - PUBLIC RADIO!
From the post:
Summer: Who was that? It sounded like a girl.
Seth: Did it? Yeah. Well, sure. Because I'm listening to the radio. And This American Life is on. And so there's a girl talking.
Summer: Is that that show where those hipster know-it-alls talk about how fascinating ordinary people are? God.

I suppose that deep down inside, I like irreverance. Does that make me white?
