Sad.

Very sad.

Very sad panda.

Dan Harmon got fired from Community. I can’t even begin to tell you how much this totally sucks. Community is such a genius show and it can attribute the majority of its geniusness to him.

Some other things that are as sad as Dan Harmon’s firing:

  1. The Doctor Who episode The End of Time.
  2. When Jin and Sun drowned on Lost.
  3. That we will never know the full back story of Shepherd Book.
  4. When Mary Poppins leaves the Banks children.
  5. The fact that there are people who still use Internet Explorer.*

Dan Harmon, I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for The Greendale Seven.

Thank you for school wide paintball mayhem.

Thank you for Annie’s Boobs.

Thank you for Troy and Abed in the Morning.

Thank you for giving us one the best American television shows EVER.

Thank you.

*Okay, so this is not necessarily the same kind of sad as the others. But seriously guys, just download Google Chrome or even Firefox
