"Get me out of here. Get me out of here. You don't understand, he's been talking and talking at me about Chomsky ever since we got here and I keep trying to tell him the guy's first name isn't Norm and it's not getting through GET ME OUT OF HERE NOW"

Half of me wanted to rush over and hug this dude going "Awwwwwwww" in as comforting a manner as possible, and half of me just wanted to laugh and laugh at the staggering woe on his morose little furry face. I don't know what that says about me as a person.
