It’s when choosing entertainment media becomes a form of entertainment in itself. Praise the gods of entertainment. They can be complete bastards.

He kept his eyes closed and clenched his teeth as Joseph began his spiel. Gallante! Guess who’s visiting this evening? Gallante did not care. His rage was becoming murderous. Who, Joseph. H...
