Lord, I am so tired, how long can this go on?
-- Devo, Working in a Coal Mind

I take a break to make coffee, and turn my roommate's
television on and witness a bench clearing brawl
complete with throwing punches and cat fights. While
the milk is steaming, I find out that this guy is giving
his girlfriend and ultimatum between being monogamous with
him or giving up her job as a prostitute. Her pimp is
sitting right there on stage next to her.

Now I remember why I don't own a television.
