Ms. Information sez "Kathy Griffin uses 'holy shitballs' all the time. This makes the bride's remark doubly cool."
This is just a guess, but I think the surge in Don't Stop Believin's popularity is partly down to its presence in the final Sopranos and partly because it's been the Boston Red Sox's unofficial theme song since they broke their World Series drought a few years back. Given the part of the world in which that wedding was held, it's a safe bet there were Sawx fans among the attendees.
I loved the reading of the question from the spambot. I was looking through some of the recent past episodes' comments and couldn't find the text. I'd like to see that "question" because it was so obviously a bad google translation; I'm curious as to which language it came from if we could figure it out.
Mr. H., Would love to hear the the Hrabinated version of "Don't Stop Believin"! T
1. Yes, I've noticed.
2. I think that it's triggered by the car driving up.
3. The overhead is probably low. A srore employee probably recorded it.
4. The singing during "Sheer Brick" game is in the drinking game.
5. Your analysis has taken the practice from annoying to brilliant in my mind.

I'm really sorry to hear you call Taukinukufili Taufa a religious moron- he made a stupid statement after he lost his whole family, but being a bit closer to it than you are, I think he just went a bit nuts because he'd lost everything and almost everyone close to him. Ask yourself if you could think straight under those circumstances.
