Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, Every Sunday, Chris Parnell and I do the same thing: We wake up in late in the afternoon, get some grub and then we go to either a lame movie or a Broadway show. It's starting to get a little repetitive and pricey. Plus, my girlfriend is starting to get pretty jealous of all these bro-dates. Is there anything exciting this weekend that I could write a new rap song about? - Andy Samberg---
