Yes, we know some of you are sick of us posting Sarah Haskins videos. No, she's not paying us (at this writing). Honestly, we keep waiting for her to do a video that sucks so we won't feel compelled to post it with yet another intro about how we know some of you are sick of it, and we don't really care. Fortunately or unfortunately, the woman stubbornly insists on being hilarious every time; watching her skewer "chick flicks" in this latest installment is just too damned fun to resist. Take it up with her if you don't like it
If you really must rag on our devotion to all things Haskins, though, knock yourself out. 'Cause hey, sometimes we like to cry for fun.
