April 7-8: Shawn

“What was really annoying about my high school reunion, is that the girl who was in charge of the slideshow sent a little message on the Facebook. And the message was a little annoying. It read like this: ‘Even if you’re not coming to the high school reunion, please send pictures of you and your kids.’ Presumptuous, isn’t it? So I sent a picture of myself f**king. I was like, ‘Working on it!’ ” — Shawn Pelofsky on Showtime’s Lip Service
