"When you accuse me of watching 'Extra' because I 'crush on Mario Lopez,' or suggest buying me glitter for my birthday, I know you're being funny and cool...but it's still fauxmophobia."

"Sorry, bro. That last tweet was meant to be fauxmophobic, but it may have crossed the line. Clearly I don't think you're literally getting gang-raped by bears and otters."
