You can learn some things in less than five minutes

For example, Meat Loaf (the singer, not the entree*) is an asshole.

Yeah, I know. It's reality tv, edited for effect, etc. But if you're an adult and indulging in behavior that wouldn't be tolerated if you were five, such as wearing your shirt inside-out, throwing a tantrum over somebody taking your art supplies and then not apologizing to the person you accused when you find out they didn't, you're an asshole.
Of course, maybe it was justified; because of their passion, artistic geniuses are prone to tempermental outbursts. Mere mortals like us are not capable of understanding how their minds work. If Meat Loaf thought that Gary Busey had in any way hampered his grand vision of smearing a basketball with paint and dropping it on a sheet of paper, well god damn it, maybe he had it coming.

"Wait...so now I'm the asshole?"

* If you've got some kind of "exotic" recipe for meatloaf that includes certain non-traditional ingredients, I don't want to know about it.
