But my parents, they would letme watch like,

the weirdest stuff.

Like, when I was eight,I swear I was eight,

I went to the video storewith my dad,

and he let me rent The Elephant Man.

I thought it wasa superhero movie.

You know, like Batman, Iron Man, Elephant Man.

He has the strengthof 20 men.

No, he doesn't.

He has the sadnessof 20 men.

Do you guys knowthat movie?

The guywith the fucking face.

They're trying to getthe girl to kiss him

just to fuck with him,and he's like,

"I'm not an animal."

Devastating.I was eight.

That movie took somethingfrom me.

Like, I'm sure I lostthe ability to smell rain

during that movie.

I turned to my mom,and I was like,

"Thank God moviesare fake, huh?"

And she's like, "Actually,no, this one is real."

"That is an actual diseaseanybody could get

at any time.

Good night."
