Comment from Penny Arcade:
The argument from the game’s producer is genuinely funny to us, by itself, independent of any comical elaborations we might have appended. It is some authentically next-level shit. Microtransactions as a necessary feature, one people won’t play your game without? That’s some projection, kid. “What? I can only pay sixty dollars for this game?!?! I’M GOING BACK TO DRAGONVALE” is not a phrase often heard lobbed over the Gamestop counter.
"Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like "In the Air Tonight" and, uh, "Against All Odds". Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist." -- Patrick Bateman

"We don’t know who butthexed first, us or them. But we do know it was them that weaponized the sexual marketplace while scorching the sky. At the time, they were dependent on simp manginas. It was believed they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the common man’s collective bunghole."
"This… this isn’t the butthex?"
"No. It is another training program designed to teach you one thing: if you are not one of us LOLOZLZOLLOOL'ers, you are one of them fiat bernankerz. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unbuttplugged. It is not the game that changes, it is only yourself."

"TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)" is a 1974 hit recording by MFSB (Mother, Father, Sister, Brother) featuring vocals by The Three Degrees. The track sold over one million copies, and peaked at number one on the US Billboard pop and R&B charts.
Assembled in 1972 by record producers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, MFSB was the house band for Philadelphia International Records. Over 30 musicians at Sigma Sound Studios originated the signature smooth "Philly sound" that dominated the early 1970s.
Don Cornelius, the creator and host of Soul Train, refused to allow any references to the name of the TV series when the single was released, requiring Gamble and Huff to adopt the alternate title for the release. Cornelius would later admit that not allowing the single to be named "Soul Train" was a major mistake on his part.
