This might just be the best argument for increasing the minimum wage that I’ve heard yet:

It’s just not fair that Michelle needs to go deep in hock to “feed her Ninja Turtle obsession,” is it? Well, maybe such an “obsession” leads to making poor economic decisions, but to each her own I guess. How sad.

In related news, the newest TNMT movie is set for release on March 23, 2007.

    Look, I don’t [i]revel[/i] in human misery.

    Well, maybe just a little.

    But really, that was just terribly, terribly sad.
