Friday Night Fights: It's a Trap!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, big dawgs and kittykats, it’s been one holy guacamole of a week, and I think we all need a gigantic dose of the Wonderful, Wonderful Weekend to help us get over it. And what’s the perfect way to start the weekend? A healthy meal of eggs and lizard hearts? A high-speed jog around the Loop? Listening to Alfredo Gonzales lecture us about political ethics?

Wow, that’s awesome. Only thing that’d make that better would be if Darth Milk and Cheese were beating up on Ewoks. Hey, wait a minute…
