Bob’s Burgers writer Wendy Molyneux Drake does not like Entourage. Like, at all. But she’s figured out a way to take her dislike of the property, and turn it into money for kids with cancer—it’s basically emotional alchemy. Simpsons Executive Producer Matt Selman alerted The Mary Sue to a GoFundMe account that Drake’s set up:

Her GoFundMe page is hilarious (as would be expected from a writer on Bob’s Burgers), opening with the following statement:

“If you know me at all, you know there are two things I hate: pediatric cancers and the television show Entourage. I am attempting to raise 10K to donate to CureSearch. Find out more about CureSearch here. “

The rewards are pretty sweet: As little as $5 (known as the “D-BAG LEVEL”) will get you a written review of the film, and a picture of Drake watching the film (presumably in great pain). Sure, things will hit Reddit, and then everywhere, as soon as the rewards go out (because they’ll be extremely funny), but come on: It’s only $5, and you’ll get them first.

If you or a loved one is a serious Bob’s Burgers fan, you can donate to the “DATE WITH WENDY” level, which will get you a ticket to the screening she’s attending, and you can watch her hating the film with your very own eyes.

Drake’s trying to raise a total of $10,000 for CureSearch, and she’s already at $4,000, so it looks like she’s going to have to watch Entourage. For her sake, let’s hope the page either reaches $9,999, or $20,000, because nothing would be worse than reaching $10,001 and almost getting to miss out on the pain. Her coworkers are, of course, hoping that she reaches her goal—they’re all going along with her, so they can enjoy her suffering.

Godspeed, Wendy, and feel free to donate to her page to simultaneously support hope and suffering.
