Sean Nelson, MC’ing: “Hello, everybody, and welcome to WHO’S YOUR DADDY, a celebration of alternative fatherhood presented by The Stranger, a paper that has never made any secret of being a complete bastard. As you know, our proceedings tonight will be a parade of literature, or memoir at any rate, featuring two of the most self-involved writers the English language has ever known…”

“Awesome” singing a song written in the voice of Neal Pollack. The chorus: “Oh. My. God. I’m. So. Baked.” (Or, alternately, “Oh. My. God. I’m. So. Stoned… Oh. My. God. I’m. So. High.”)

Neal Pollack reading about getting really high on something strange in Amsterdam, feeling like his body was on fire, and dumping a pitcher of water over his head in front of an audience of Dutch literary intelligentsia.
