Have already made it clear that I’ll be taking a break from 11-midnight at work so I can watch #TCGS on my phone.
Hello, anon, and thank you for the question.
This topic has been studied by researchers for years. There are three prevailing theories that I will relay to you now.
1. It keeps him on the ground.
You may notice in the gif above that Chris’ leg starts to rise as he laughs, possibly a precursor to his entire body undergoing a sort of lift off due to his joy. Chris then employs his upper body strength to force himself to obey the laws of gravity.
2. To check on his physique.
As you may be aware, anon, it takes a lot of hard work to maintain a superhero body. Chris is concerned that in the time he has spent sitting down, sans working out or eating, he has lost muscle mass. Understandably, he feels the need to make sure that he is still a specimen.
3. Object permanence.
Object permanence is a term applied to the understanding that an object still exists even when you cannot see it. Chris closes his eyes when he laughs, making him unable to see that he has not disappeared. By grabbing his left boob, Chris knows that he has not somehow ceased to exist.
I hope this helps.
Why would anyone believe that? You’re not fine. If you were, you wouldn’t be crying and lying at the greater Philadelphia area’s finest convenient store. What are people supposed to think you’re crying for? Best case scenario: People believe you’re crying because the dispenser is out of pumpkin coffee…I didn’t think about that…that’s the best case scenario; crying over coffee. But there’s some real shit going on, and if the people in this Wawa knew how much strength it took for you to even get out of bed, let alone into a car, let alone make it here; they would applaud you for being the hero that you are. Yeah, you’re feeling feelings and that’s real an-and maybe you’re feeling judged by these soft pretzel eaters but some times you gotta cry in public, even if makes a bunch of people in a Wawa really uncomfortable.

My Comedy Album (via riffinbits)
7 months ago, I wouldn’t leave my apartment for anything but work or therapy.
Tonight, after attending my sketch writing class, I went to an album release party for my favorite comedian, spoke with several people involved in his TV show and met (officially) one of my favorite singers.
All I’m saying is that when I joked about “New Year, New Me” last October, I didn’t realize it would actually happen.
