Inspired by the Onion AV Club's list of R.Kelly's wants from his latest album.

Feel free to get as innuendo-ish as you like, but try not to get us banned by office net nannies, OK? ;)

jen / July 9, 2009 12:49 PM

is rock 'n' roll all night, and party every day too obvious? or too true? you be the judge.

Sara B. / July 9, 2009 12:49 PM

I wanna get alone with that bacon and chocolate Vosges bar advertised above. Mmmm.

nana / July 9, 2009 12:50 PM

be adored.

Jasmine / July 9, 2009 1:02 PM

I want you to want me.

Also, like Sara B., I wanna get with the Mo's Bacon & Chocolate Bar from the Vosges banner ad.

Andy / July 9, 2009 1:19 PM

jlp / July 9, 2009 1:21 PM

finish this damn paper so that I can bake my birthday cupcakes for my fête tomorrow!

charlie / July 9, 2009 2:04 PM

I wanna open a restaurant.

Guy Smiley / July 9, 2009 2:11 PM

Have some fun. I got a feeling I'm not the only one.

Pete / July 9, 2009 2:35 PM

I'm sure you realize that this is an open invitation for people to suggest any of a dozen or more Ramones songs. In which case I concur with "be sedated."

Good Luck / July 9, 2009 3:15 PM

I wanna ban the word “Transparency”.

That jackass kept saying it during the election, the whole time being too naïve to know that word does not work in D.C., and the sheep followed him.

Now everyone down to the freaking garbage man are using it…“Transparency! Transparency!”…commercials, ads, even fucking food specials.

But he speaks so well..............

Luke / July 9, 2009 3:59 PM

smack that tiresome Good Luck.

I Wanna Live In A Dream In My Record Machine.

annie / July 9, 2009 4:56 PM

get drunk tonight! + help Luke smack Good Luck. + get a new job + take tomorrow off

Good Luck / July 9, 2009 7:01 PM

Luke...there is this language called English, you should try it sometime.

Annie...shouldn't you be more transparent?

Where are you getting drunk?

What are you drinking?

Do you binge drink much?

Are you running away from something/someone in your binge drinking?

Maybe you need a new job because of your drinking problem.

Do you normally take days off because of the previous nights binge drinking?

I mean, if we are going to be transparent.

Good Luck / July 9, 2009 8:10 PM

you know, the funny thing is that people post under my name who aren't me.

...but to answer the question. I wanna give a shout out to the people of Iran, who have, for over a month, stood up to a tyranical regime to demand their country and independence back, while the so-called progressive movement in the USA has totally abandoned that fight.

Good Luck / July 9, 2009 8:11 PM

p.s. I don't need to resort to petty attacks in order to express my point of view

Leslie / July 9, 2009 9:42 PM

Good Luck: "I don't need to resort to petty attacks..." That's exactly what your posts are. Take a moment to revel in the irony.

flange / July 9, 2009 10:08 PM

shoot a man in reno, just to watch him die.

Andrew / July 9, 2009 11:36 PM

"you know, the funny thing is that people post under my name who aren't me."

That would be easier to combat if you didn't hide behind an anonymous handle.

For the record, the first two comments from "Good Luck" were by an imposter.

Good luck / July 10, 2009 9:02 AM

"That would be easier to combat if you didn't hide behind an anonymous handle."

With threats of violence and all, it would be foolish not to remain anonymous.
