*glares over the city limit* Goddamn it, Dallas! Could you maybe tone down the upfuckery, please? You're embarrassing your neighbors here in Irving.

Would it really kill a high school football team to not be so goddamn rape-y?

Shut up, you pinko liberal and stop defiling the Holy Sacrament of Football with your feminazi politics!

*blinks repeatedly and shakes her head briskly* Damn it, I think they're putting something in the water!

Yikes! I really can't think of a single context in which that "slogan" doesn't sound WAAAAAY too fucking creepy for any kind of football... or anything else that doesn't inspire a Law & Order episode. Even if we rub off that whole rapey vibe and just call it part of that competitive team spirit, it ain't really kosher. I played football in high school and am not ashamed that we'd invent catchy little chants about murdering our opponents. What we didn't do was break that shit down into the serial killer's climactic Death Whisper.

Really, though... who wants to hear their fucking nurse say a thing like that? Jesus, Sunny! Don't ever let your patients know where you hang out.

Look, this catheter is going in one way or another. It really helps if you relax.

Oh god that sounds so bad.

Some people with a fetish. I'm pretty sure there are out there.

I'm pretty sure the situation doesn't feel any better. Please don't take this the wrong way, but I think there's gotta be a streak of psycho in a person for them to be a competent nurse, especially working in a hospital setting. I'm talking about sociopathy as opposed to sadism. I really hope and pray people like you are able to switch off the empathy chip when they're doing that (yeesh) catheter thing. If not, psychological damage would be unavoidable. It probably is anyway.

I hear the money's pretty decent, at least, and the world owes your kind A LOT of saved lives and dignified deaths. Hats off to you, Ms. Sunshine! (Please don't kill us all. God knows we deserve it sometimes.)

I ought to bill you $2.99 for the things you've made me remember.
