  1. "One time I turned on the TV and could see straight up the guy's nose, nose hairs and everything. I hate that so much."
  2. "They just put a [traffic] roundabout in Ames and everyone's in an uproar."
  3. "I can't stand those NBC morning show people. Yuck, yuck, yuck."
  4. "I can eat an entire small squash by myself."
