“ I bet I won’t even be able to eat spaghetti and meatballs ever again. Oh god, I could eat. Not necessarily spaghetti and meatballs, but not necessarily not spaghetti and meatballs. I mean I really like spaghetti and meatballs. Man, if I don't get some spaghetti and meatballs I might literally die.”

That’s the Sunday News Recap for this week. Oh, and Trish, us with your looks maybe bitchy’s not the way to go. Don’t forget, we’ll return on Sunday with another edition of the Recap.
