All right. So, I wrote...

Hi, Matt, this is to certify that

this is the big fat cock I ordered.

Wait, why would you

put Matt's name in it?

Well, this is supposed

to be about you, right?

No, they're about marriage,

they're not about my marriage.

Right, but it's a joke,

like everyone else's.

Well, it's not like everybody else's.

It was a joke. It wasn't

a prediction. You know.

A joke.

How about we do another one?

And why would you tweak

the nipples on the Buddha?

That seemed, like, disrespectful.

Disrespectful to who? To you?

Did you convert to Buddhism?

No, that's disgusting. I'm not Buddhist.

It's... That's Buddha. That's Buddha!

Right, right. But you know that

was a joke about nipples. Right?

And not Buddhism.

Yeah, Buddha is sacred to a

This is a party, so let's

Okay, yeah, no, forgotten.

Um, I mean, we

So this lady has a

Hey, sleepy head. Good morning.

Oh, wow.

I shot these on Tuesday.

They were such an amazing couple.

They were so open to all of my ideas.

Great. Where is that?

Over in Seattle. We had to

go near the shipyards though

so we could get something

a little more edgy.

'Cause I mean, look at that wall.


Hey, weren't you supposed to go

to that career counselor today?


Yeah? You should...

Yeah. Yeah, okay. I'll go get ready.


Hello, is somebody there?

It's me, you don't have to come out.

What's this?

What's what? I'm just

gonna watch some TV.

Megan, I don't think

I like this new habit.

I spoke with Anthony,

and he said you were meeting

with the career counselor today.

My God, I know exactly

what she's going to say.

It's just a waste of time.

Megan, honey, I don't want to
