    Wow you must really have nothing better to do with your life that you had to copy my own comment… No one ever taught you if you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all?

    Leave the show alone

  • merrranga

    i find Sandra Bernhard to be a disgusting person inside and out. hence the comment.

    i don’t think anything on any entertain website ever in the history of man has ever been ‘necessary’, not a word.

    Wow you must really have nothing better to do with your life that you had to complain about my comments… No one ever taught you no one cares what you think?

    and don’t worry like most people on a Monday, i will definitely leave the show alone.

  • M

    You should take your own advice then…. No one cares that you dislike her so you shouldn’t have posted the comment to begin with

    If you don’t even watch the show why do you care who guest stars on it or not?

    If people left the show alone it wouldn’t be in its third season

    So yeah maybe most comments are unnecessary but yours definitely takes the cake

  • merrranga

    i know no one cares what i think. still gonna say it. why? cause i don’t care what you think! see how that works?

  • M

    So if you don’t care what I or anyone else thinks, and you know no one cares what you think, why have you wasted all this time replying back to a simple question… Was that really necessary?

    PS I can keep going at this forever… just give up

  • merrranga

    because i feel like it?
    and as i said, not one word on this entire website is necessary.

    you can keep replying to me? congratulations! that IS pretty impressive.

    “PS I can keep going at this forever… just give up”
