Brad Green hates skunks. This isn’t a hatred similar to one high school girl hating that another high school girl’s ass is closer to the Platonic form of an ass. No, this hatred isn’t like that. For one thing, Brad Green isn’t a high school girl, so it’d be hard to really have that sort of hatred. No, his hatred of skunks would be legendary if such hatreds were actually cataloged and revered. If a movie were ever to be made about his hatred of skunks, he thinks Nicolas Cage would portray his hatred rather well. He may occasionally blog about this at http://elevatetheordinary.wordpress.com.
