Do you remember that time there was that big thunderstorm, and you were really scared, and you asked to crawl into bed with me, and I was a little weirded out, but you’re my little bro, so I said okay. And then… You tried to touch my weiner? One of the least fun things in life is when your gay bro… He’s gay and he knows you’re not gay, and he tries to touch your weiner anyway.”
