Oh, Tobias, you blowhard!
Annyong, everyone, and welcome to the Sunday News Recap, featuring the last seven days’ worth of reviews and features from a folk music band called Dr. Funke's 100 Percent Natural Good Time Family Band Solution. The group was underwritten by the Natural Food Life Company, a division of Chem-Grow, an Allen Crayne acqusition, which was part of the Squimm Group. Their motto was simple: We keep you alive. We’ll also run down the box office numbers for the weekend and prepare you for the week ahead. I’m Ryan, and Michael, you are not quite the ladies’ man I had pictured. Hopefully, we will remedy that when we are in the spa spreading body chocolate on each other. Where the fuck are my hard-boiled eggs?
” Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over - an analyst and a therapist? The world's first analrapist.”
