I was gonna come fix this and you all fixed it for me, thanks.

That's a British thing, right, smarties? I don't see where Cecil has spoken to this confectionery delight. Though I do have it on good authority that Ed Zotti is a Red Vines kind of guy, for what that's worth.

My mind is picturing some teenage cartoon toucan in Toontown, sobbing into his pillow as what he thought would be his dream acting job turned into a new shade of hell as the internet tears him apart.
