Your Charity Forced Me Back to YouTube

When I offered to thank people in a YouTube video for donating $100 or more to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, I didn’t realize you people would actually do it. Moneybagses!

Well, my word is bond, as the kids used to say, so here’s my first video in ages, thanking the first people who donated and also saying a thing about balls:

Dear lord, I made a YouTube video, and to make matters worse I opened with a joke in which I exaggerated the rhetoric and implied values of the people who harass women as a way to satirize that rhetoric and implied values, WHAT WAS I THINKING???

Anyway, maybe I’ll do more.

Thanks to everyone who has donated thus far and to those helping spread the word!
