I think that's how Giant Bombers say they got laid. "Duder, I got tons of pooyan last night. I was, just, drowning in pooyan."

To the guy who let us join his Cards Against Humanity game while waiting for the Giant Bomb panel: I think I had more fun playing that game than I did at the panel itself. The guy who sang all of Kanye West's "Power" and got the line singing too was awesome, as well. Giant Bombers are the funniest dudes around.

By the way, if anyone has a pic of me dressed up as Persona 4's Charlie Tunoku I'd love to see em!
