This week Amy finally comes clean about her Boob Issue. Her bloody tits should be in a Rob Zombie movie, but Dr. Molly Sebastian (M-Seb) is taking very good care of her. Then Amy tells a funny story about a “female coworker” to whom she showed her bloody boob at brunch. She didn’t get Matt’s permission to tell the story ahead of time, but we all know it was him, so now we can give him credit for his funny jokes.
