  2. So, what, you’re chatting to Bueller while taking a leak and you zip your lady dagger up in your zipper, and so you say to him ‘Only the meat gets pinched. The bold survive’?

    Why would you even say that?

    1. Well, I would admit I wasn’t thinking too clearly at the time, Thomas.

      It probably sounded like this:
      *look of concern from Bueller*
