“You know, when I eat three peas, I’m pregnant. When I visit a city, I’m buying a house. In the winter I separate, in the summer I marry. It’s been 15 years since I’ve been getting married every year. In addition, I have to answer all these rumors!”
— Vanessa Paradis gets the prize for the best “mind your own business” response to a journalist asking her about the alleged Johnny Depp breakup.

I have no business watching a scrotum itch commercial, much less one in Japanese. But I don’t regret the minutes of my life I’ll never get back after watching this on repeat. There’s itching.
