There are few things on the Internet that I enjoy more than a thorough dissection of why, exactly, someone is very very wrong (see also: Susan vs Dr. Laura and her takedowns). The following image was met with quite a bit of scorn (and quite a few rude gifs) on Tumblr and elsewhere, but Buster […]
I Hate Sookie
