    You know what really grinds my gears? This Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay Lohan with all those little outfits, jumping around there on stage, half-naked with your little outfits. Ya know? You're out there jumping around and I'm just sitting here with my beer. So, what am I supposed to do? What you want? You know, are we gonna go out? Is that what you're trying to...why are you leaping around there, throwing those things all up in my, over there in my face? What do you want, Lindsay? Tell me what you want? Well, I'll tell you what you want, you want nothing. You want nothing. All right? Because we all know that no woman anywhere wants to have sex with anyone, and to titillate us with any thoughts otherwise is--is just bogus.

      I think torimari's referring to a Peter Griffin rant on Family Guy where he completely flies off his rocker on his news segment big_smile

      Watched it last night, since we now get more than one channel with the new TV.  Bunch of time traveling and a fat concubine.  Didn't grind my gears, though.

      What grinds my gears is that the proposed Health Care so called reform plan in the USA intends to fine me for not buying health insurance. 

      Gr-r-r-r-r-r-r-rind!!!!sad:
