Douche Move of the Week: Tim, for standing around shirtless and caressing an orange, declaring the competition to be “an overload of sausage,” and announcing “you don’t get in the Tim-meister’s way when I’m working my A game.” (Dude, if you’re going to refer to yourself in the third person, at least have the decency to carry it to the end of the sentence!)
