    I’m greatly amused by the gas prices photo. Look up and to your right – does that sign say "Freaks" or am I getting subliminal messages again?

    Says "Freaks" to me.

    Brian, have you ever tried to drink Pocari Sweat? eww.

    Apparently Senji thinks you’re Brian Ice.

    Question from the peanut gallery: when will the Brian Ice Confuse-O-Meter be going up here?
