I have something I want to share with all of you: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=talk%20to%20huey%20on%20the%20great%20white%20telephone

After the initial ten-minute choking fit I just sat there for a while, struck by the sheer beauty of it. This is just sublime... I hope you'll be able to share my boundless admiration
