So Dan Gray has decided I'm his nemesis.
So it's time for me to let you all know the real Dan Gray, because really, the K-blogosphere has been entirely too bland since Metropolitician and Baeksu had their last falling out, and I'd like to make a case for why you should all be on MY side when it's time to March on Dan's twee little cupcake-eating apartment with pitchforks and torches.

wait for it.
"I hate you, Roboseyo."
When he eats cookies, he says "I'm a keebler elf!" and sings an elvin song.
After watching The Matrix ten years ago, he said to me the other day, "Hey, you know, what if WE'RE in the Matrix, right now? That'd be weird, wouldn't it?"

He calls Maxim instant "Real coffee."
He cried at the end of D-Wars.
When he had to start dressing more formally because he became an adult, his mom made a youtube video to show him how to attach his tie. It was a clip-on.
He looked up all his former classmates on Facebook, and sends them each a vampire bite a week.
He plagiarizes lines from The Search For The Holy Grail to insult me... but picks the wrong ones. "Hey Roboseyo: 'Help! Help! I'm being oppressed!' Hey! Hey Roboseyo! 'Three shall be the number thou shalt count' haha!"
He thinks Scary Movie 3 was better than Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Because his criteria for good movies is frequency of shots of hot women running in slow motion.

He thinks Ben Wagner is a fairy tale character.
He doesn't understand that words in acronyms stand for something.

OK, Dan. Your move.
