First Draft: Embarrassment Squick
Desperately need a personal assistant to keep up with my rapidly expanding agenda. Rest assured I’d never be so intemperate an employer as the late Linda Stein, former manager of the Ramones, who was recently bludgeoned to death by her PA (Natavia don’t play that Naomi Campbell diva bullshit, y0!) Obviously, this is all wishful speculation on my part; before hiring anyone to manage my affairs I’d first need to secure an income stable enough to support myself financially, let alone an employee.

Are fetus-fetishizing conservatwits entirely allergic to irony? Much as I’m loathe to utilize the overused ‘fucking for virginity’ analogy, in this instance I think it fits perfectly. “Way twisted,” indeed.
