Do these posts make my rants look fat??
As many of my Plus Ones (Austin Helms! David! Chris Ryan!) have noted, I enjoy ranting. A lot. Often. And always.
What can I say? Much like how poets and novelists pen better works when they want to slit their wrists and beat the fluid out, or emo bands write better crap when their girlfriends fuck their drummers, I feel I write better comedy when I need to bitch about something.
So rant I do! When I'm drunk, and I go on a rant, my voice tends to get louder and my hand gestures more grandiose and ginzo, and people USUALLY have a great time of it.

She's the head blogger of fake gossip blog "bitchpleeze.com" who shows up on Weekend Update, laptop and Starbucks iced coffee in hand, and a pound of snot in her nose.
She is notorious for dropping bad, snarky puns about movies she hasn't seen, and then yelling biiiiitch pleeeeze!
And so I fear: Am I Angie Tempura? Are people all secretly laughing at me when I bitch about people using their umbrellas like fancy canes?
