    In the time it takes for Tool to release a new album your pubic hair could grow so long that it'd completely bury the town you live in underneath it all, suffocating every man, woman and child, sparing no one, and so if Tool should hurry up because of any reason, it's because nobody deserves to be suffocated by pubes, unless they're Emma Stone's pubes, in which case sit on my face and take my life you incredibly beautiful woman.

    Listening to TOOL gave me the power to be a psychic, medium, and a shaman. Maynerd is my spiritual guide. He showed me the way to my philosophy minor and career in grape-picking. Hail TOOL and that monkey they get to play drums.
