But I kept trying to find the dirtiest thing that the computer would allow. I tried to get it to print ASSHOLE, but it wouldn’t let me do that, and then I did BUTTHOLE, but that didn’t work either, but I got it to approve BUMHOLE. Also, I got a pair that says EAT POOP.” Seth Rogen [Elle]

We loved seeing his [genitals] in Robert Altman's Short Cuts." David Gordon Green on how Huey Lewis ended up recording the theme song for Pineapple Express [Soundboard/LAT]
