If you have never listened to the amazingly brilliant advicecast that is My Brother, My Brother and Me…you should. Right now.
Start with this one: Holy Terror
I was first introduced to the slightly nasal, but totally adorable, voices of Travis, Justin and Griffin McElroy by iprefermyironyinotherpeople. I instantly fell in love. A few minutes later, I almost-instantly forgot how hard I fell…until iprefermyironyinotherpeople sent me this excerpt from one of their verbal symphonies:
Brother #1: If someone is more Chinese than me - or any nationality - more Asian, more Italian - and older than me…I assume that if I cross them, they will put a curse on me.
Brother #2: Holy. Sh*t. That’s…not…great…
Brother #1: No, is that not worth, like —
Brother #3: SAYING OUT LOUD ON THE INTERNET?!!?!?
Brother #1: What? That I’m afraid anyone who is not white is going to put a curse on me? I don’t think that’s so wrong. I think that’s a pretty common assumption.
I think I’ve found my soulmate.
