Fire the Canon

Join us as we learn all about F. Scott Fitzgerald in preparation for our upcoming miniseries on The Great Gatsby! This poor guy had quite the wild life, including writing what some consider to be the quintessential American novel (somehow, the tale of rich people in New York City). Through his work, he strove to answer the eternal question: can a poor boy marry a rich girl?!?! Rachel totals a car in a spectacular manner. Jackie debuts her alter egos, B. Scott Berton (the B stands for Beyonce) and Li’l Grizz. Theo has a big chagrin on his face. Topics include: flirting en masse, Nathan Fielder, hot boy summer, the third front, totally fair rental agreements, good relationships, Freud, Rosemary’s Baby, the Apple Jacks incident, Francis Scott Keye, density, Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Dick Diver, The Princess Bride, Theo Anthony, Dark Brandon, and breaking up because of Shrek.
