The bit where angry melon bear met children was exactly what I was expecting :lol:

What amazed me was how long he carried on interacting with them and being filmed

Everything to do with employment is strawberry floated up and in favour of the huge corporations in the US, isn't it? What a horrible place to be small time.

Check out the comments section of the latest episode on Youtube. :dread: Gamergaters out in force. So many dislikes for the video, too. A record number, I'm sure.

The moment I saw those two women pop up in the episode I groaned because the whining is so strawberry floating inevitable at this point.

He didn't even comment on their petty argument, the focus was solely on the insanely specific, numerous and personal death threats sent.

He's a banana split, alright. The Daily Show last night showed some other gooseberry fool he's been saying, too

Oliver broke down what he was saying quite well I thought, basically he admitted he wanted to commit sex crimes. :dread:

The way transgender issues are treated in America (and I am sure elsewhere in the world) are so bizarre. All those laws around toilets, commending the bravery of soldiers while kicking them out and the talk show hosts obession with genitals. :dread:

The Daily Show taking several weeks off when Jon is leaving in August anyway is particularly ridiculous.

I wasn't paying full attention and thought it was a picture of Donald Trump until I rewound.
