Re: Buttstallation

I read the title as "Buttstallion" many, many times.

Please, in the name of all that's holy, never make a video called "Buttstallion."

I love my job in theory. Like when I'm not there, and I think about it in the abstract, it's pretty flippin' sweet. But when I'm actually AT work, I am an angry ball of hate and loathing. Alex, you got to let me know, should I stay or should I go?
