The laughs. The drinks. The way one sentence followed another sentence in a more or less coherent order.

So here it is: the Year in Short. All of the out-of-context quotes that made 2015 what it was.
“... whiskey, leather and a virgin are involved.”
“... that tree is a block of wood that you can put your face on.”
“... you’re a fool to trust sea monkeys around your sandwich.”
“A mural of the history of balls.”
“Because they’re always named Günther.”
“Congrats on getting to say ‘Ting’ now.”
“Now there was a guy who could paint the hell out of a water lily.”
“Because interns and rum... always such a great combination.”
“You’re like Fallon, but worse.”
“It’s one of Mick’s stranger fever dreams, to be sure.”
