Best comedy hour on terrestrial television: 

Russell Howard - Recalibrate

Its fucking cold outside.

No seriously.    

Its R-E-A-L-L-Y FUCKING cold outside - 26 C / - 36 C windchill, literally -40ish last nite too...  but see, Canadians are thick skinned like Russians, but with less mafias & more variety potato dishes. Canadians also have Drake, bacon, KEN mode, and Swallowing Shit.

Applause great effort

Best thing I've been called online in 2017: a keyboard warrior troll, by a wanker who does not know hardship.


I mean for real tho, why is the kebab smiley sad?  it looks like a turd on a weigh scale and some sad smiley taking a light saber to it.  I need a back story.   What gives??

Kebab eating should be cherished. Arabian food is delicious, and Great Britain is full of good kebab houses.

Definitely adding to my "Top Halogenix tune of the year"  file.   

So good.
