So Hank, I’m going to read you some comments that people have posted in the last week on “Vlog Brothers” videos. These are all direct quotes except for every time they use a curse word, I’m going to use the name of a famous American poet. “You ‘Walt Whitmaning’ ‘Edna St. Vincent Millay’. Go ‘Emily Dickinson’ your mom.” Thanks for the advice you pathetic piece of ‘E.E. Cummings’ but I think I’m going to pass.

What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.
