That's it. I've decided. I am scrooge. This just makes me angry and kind of concerned. Granted less believe in Santa than in a god, but how can you justify 52%? Either they are mentally deficient, or screwing around with their answers (but that seems unlikely given such a high percentage). And PPP is usually really on with their results. They nailed the election. Someone talk me down.
They don't look giant to me! *rimshot* No but seriously, this is great.

This is at least one of my favorites, because it's something that's happened to me. I just wish I'd had an equally witty comeback. I love to read, and when people ask why you read, it's just so... sad. I've noticed a certain anti-intellectualism going around this country; since about 1980, coincidentally enough. … I was in Nashville, Tennessee, and after the show I went to a Waffle House. I'm not proud of it, but I was hungry. And I'm sitting there eating and reading a book. I don't know anybody, I'm alone, so I'm reading a book. The waitress comes over to me like, [gum smacking] "What'chu readin' for?" I had never been asked that. Not "What am I reading?", but "What am I reading for?" Goddangit, you stumped me. Hmm, why do I read? I suppose I read for a lot of reasons, one of the main ones being so I don't end up being a fucking waffle waitress.
