    I’m referring you to a colleague of mine who can council you for your OCD and enroll you in the 12 step program, FFA, (fossil fuel addiction). Follow this strict organic Vegan diet and I want to see you again if your fever gets any higher than 59 degrees. Pills, potions & procedures won’t fix this Waldo, so get your buns off the table & get to work.
