insanityria: I’m sure there must be. Or something. Someone has to be happy about this. Right? I think they’re hiding from the Newsies fandom. I would be.
raphaellaskies: I’m sure Matthew Morrison’s a nice guy and all, but I just can’t look at him without thinking “Will Schuester” and subsequently vomiting. I have the same problem, except instead of vomiting, I rage and yell.
