Ween – Object

A creepy little ditty by Ween made creepier with a fan-video featuring movie baddies.

Lyrics after the cut

You’re just an object to me.
I’d like to get to know you better.
Paste you across, my body, you’re just an object to me.
You’re just a piece of meat.
And I am a butcher.
I love you better, love you forever, you’re just an object to me.
Why, sit in the shade?
Drink what we made from a lover’s cup. Dreams don’t always come, when you fall asleep, you’re just an object to me.
I’m gonna do something wrong.
No bodies gonna like it.
But I’ve got my pride, and my time isn’t free, you’re just an object to me.
You’re just an object to me.
I feel a little better.
They found your sweater.
You’re just an object to me.

Happy New Year everyone! Back to the Friday Fives! Enjoy!

Squirrel wrecks a kitchen and then escapes like a BOSS!

This happened to me once. I woke up to find a squirrel staring at me from across the room and then a chased it around the house with a broom until I locked him in the stairwell. Animal control came to remove it and it sounded like fucking LOONEY TUNES in there with all the crashing and banging and screaming. Good times.
