Ellen Is Terrifying

BY Intern Tessa in Boob Tube |

Beloved TV host Ellen (no last name necessary, obvs) loves to make her audience dance, viewers laugh, and guests piss their pants when she scares the hell out of them.

I will render its brilliance in detail for you here so that you may recreate it at home, because you are definitely, definitely going to want to play. The first round was essentially Pin the Tail on the Donkey, only the tail was a paper chicken and ... Read More
