Did he find a toilet?
Fohty-nein thousand yeeeazThey kill me. They totally kill me all up and down. Existence there is extremely primal, very close to nature. Every time they're on the tee vee, and I mean every time, they must use one of three words no matter the subject, and each instance the word lands with double the emphasis. 1) yeeeeeeeahs2) aaaaaah3) woooootah Non rhotic English changes your mouth.

They're really not that hard to find.
