Who was the guy on Dan Savage's left (from Dan's perspective)? I feel like I should know who he is immediately, but I don't.

Instant heart-burn, especially when combined with bourbon. And If I had to choose between cake (or food in general) and bourbon, well, the answer is so obvious as to not bother relating.

You guys should give out small-batch scotch instead.

Besides, isn't alcoholism supposed to be rampant among creative types? Fuck, Peter O'Toole is still alive enough to say offensive and awesome remarks to uptight bitches.
