We already had to stand up and support that rape culture is a real thing and not a product of "female hysteria" this week.

I'd like to introduce you to my favorite person in the world. Yep, this guy. He is Gene Kelly on bath salts. He is Tom Jones' best impression of William Shatner. He is a Celtic warrior with a bass drum for a chest. He is an infomercial dad with Satanic leanings. He has seventy-five hip joints, and he is using all of them. He is Samuel T.

So now you're on  your way to work/class/anything and you have to scramble to look like an actual human for a number of hours.Here are...
