Oops. Maybe. Maybe not. Both Gov.

Seems pretty straightforward, right? Well, as commenters are wont to do (except, of course, you good FrontBurnervians, who would never do anything like that), the conversation quickly went completely off the rails and somehow included global warming, Obama, Laura Miller, light bulbs and how hot 78 degrees Fahrenheit is.

IMDb Roulette. Instead of an earworm, I give you an … eyeworm? I don’t know. It’s some quotes from a show or a movie, and it’ll happen every Friday. Find a way to work them into your comments today, will you?
