What's the matter, daddy?

You could've joined us.

You know I can't get it up in a crowd, baby.

Did you read my new poem?

I'm doing it tonight.

No, not yet.

What the f*ck are you watching?

The men had their sex changed,

but now they're lesbian.


The men had their sex changed,

but now they're lesbian.

Wait a minute. A man becomes a woman, yeah?

But he doesn't do it

to sleep with a man as a woman.

He does it to sleep with a woman as a woman.


So he cuts off his dick so he can sleep

with a woman without the equipment.


No. He could have saved a lot of money

giving women head and keeping his dick.

But then he wouldn't have been a woman.

Oh, right. Excuse me, I forgot that part.

The baby's fatheris also

yourbaby's cousin. That's notright.

There are some

crazy motherf*ckers in this world.

Where's my veggieburger?

- I don't know.

- I don't know.

Was that a veggieburger?

The shit tastes just like meat.

You greedy bastard. You ate it!

Which one of you f*cks ate my veggieburger?

That shit's not funny! I am the vegetarian.

Buy your own f*cking food.

Cookie, you are so full of shit.

Don't you just love people who smoke

three packs a day and say, ''I'm a vegetarian''.

F*ck that. You can talk to me about health

when you stop smoking, OK?

Oh, yeah? You talk to me about smoking

when you stop doing blow, arsehole.

I win.

Excuse me. Excuse me, sir.

Just call me Spoon.


- Stretch...

- Alexander Rowlam.

Most people call me ''Stretch''.

It's stilltoo early to tell,

but, in all honesty, she may not make it.

We're doing allwe can.

We just have to wait and see.

Cn we see her?
