I think all unsuccessful men over the age of 35 should be systematically exterminated.

If you’re heterosexual, over 35 years of age, not currently in a long-term relationship of some kind, and/or don’t have kids, you’re done. Congrats.

And to get everyone on board with this, we’ll start exclusively with…

I enjoyed this dumb little energy drink of a movie.

That was a bit of a surprise to me. Sing 1, I didn’t love. Why are singing competitions still a thing? So dated. So 2007. “You too can be part of the establishment, center of the universe.” Auditioning for the…
