    I feel like this is general knowledge but if you don't know when someone is called a 'pussy' it is not referring to them as a female anatomical part, it is a shorting from 'pussy cat' or 'scaredy cat'. As you call someone a 'pussy' when they are acting scared or skittish. Thank you for listening to my grammatical error filled TED Talk!

    What Nick says at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1140">19:00</a> about Ron reminds me of the scouts and Goddesses episode. Ron isn't funny in that episode because Nick is playing funny. The comedy comes from the fact that Nick/Ron is committing so hard to being a hard ass that he is oblivious to anyone's perception of him. it makes the episode funny and even heartfelt with that ending. Also, Nick was kinda struggling until he got to the end. Then he seemed totally fine which honestly scared me more than if he hadn't been struggling at all like Jay Pharoah. ya know what i mean?

    Wish this guy would stop cutting nick off 😂😂 He was just about to talk about how he owns part of the lagavulin company in Scotland.
