    ...may I use your skull for a bowl? This song has just made my Christmas much, much better. Although I'm not sure my mom was very fond of it... XD

    Ah, Tom. What a man, what a voice. He can drink my blood, if it makes him happy. As long as he sings me Jockey Full of Bourbon first...

    I hate it when I'm listening to an album, and it scrobbles it to the wrong fucking album! It's the title track of the album for christ's sake!
