“I have a theory. And that’s that everybody’s life is full of terrible sh*t. And so what happens is you watch this guy going through all this terrible sh*t, and the terrible sh*t that’s happening to you? Not as big a deal!”
“So basically, Donald Duck had stuff in his butt, go.”
“Imagine Indiana Jones has succeeded. Like, he’s destroyed all his enemies. He’s Scrooge McDuck then.”
“There was a row of Hitler pictures coming down a conveyor belt, and he had to ‘Heil Hitler’ on each picture as it went into a bin.”
“That’s how you make Donald Duck relevant again, just make him a Donald Trump analogue.”
“Donald Trumpduck and the Space Force! It writes itself.”
