    Master Sucker,

    Did you happen to stumble across these videos while researching? If not, I hope you enjoy them:

    This was utterly hilarious. I do hope after all this research you looked into watching Seth Rogen and James Franco’s ‘The Interview’ because it is on par with how crazy all this is. You think anyone he went to college with was like “that fucking bullshit, writing how many books a day? I call bullshit, I never saw him write shit”. I feel like all the flat Earthers would feel right at home in the absolute horseshit fantasy world North Korea lives by- for they wouldn’t need to be threatened to believe in something so stupid, they’re already there. Thanks for continuing to make sucking awesome!

    I guess I should have actually clarified that the beginning of this was hilarious, and as it went on it got gruesome and utterly horrible. What monsters the government are in North Korea.

    How’s it going all mighty Suck God and Lord Optimus Suck! Just wanted to say I loved the episode and was horrified when you spoke about the mother that had to kill her baby. I can deal with a lot of crazy shit, but that one made my skin crawl. On a much happier note, I came to your show at the laughing skull Friday night and laughed my ass off. It’s the first show of yours that I’ve ever been able to catch so I got a front row table table with my wife just to make sure I would have some tall SOB blocking my view. You absolutely didn’t disappoint!! My wife liked it so much she finally sat down and watched “Don’t Wake The Bear.” Thanks for making my first show such a great one. (The guys with you were pretty good too) My Bojangles shirt didn’t arrive until today but I was trying to support the suck while I was there I promise. Anyway thanks for the Suck, I absolutely love it and look forward to every new episode. Keep on discussing whatever you feel like (controversial or not) and please never feel like there’s something that may be too far. I learned a ton about Transgender people from your show last week and if you had held back, I probably never would have known as much. Keep doing what you do and Keep On Sucking!!
