Ira & Louis 4 eva

Love love love this show. Especially when ira and Louis make obscure amazing pop references. That time they brought up sneaker night? YES.

Look forward to this show every goddamn week and if I could have any wish it would be that Louis and Ira would a) write books and b) tell us more about their personal histories. What was their childhoods like? What’s their relationships with their parents.

Never keep it, Keep It.

❤️❤️

Love Louis and Ira

I’m agree💯with Ira. I can’t watch CNN because of Santorum. I miss watching Anderson Cooper, but I refuse to have that republikkkan idiot on my tv.
