Review for Loser

What I liked best is the cynicism you used when explaining what Matt and Marcus´ friendship/ symbiosis is based on and pointing out the reason why Luanne was nice to people in grade school. I could just die for those little caustic remarks.
What I did not get was why Marcus went to therapy - you would think that the geeks needed therapy after having met Marcus - and the whole “BLEEP!cking”. (I mean I know what it stands for but what is it doing here?) Maybe you can explain that to me?
From a linguistic point of view, I guess that should be “to de-loseR him” because Luanne is trying to get Matt into stop being a loser and not trying to “find” or “retrieve” him which would be what “de-lose” should logically mean. One can probably argue about that one, though, because it´s a made up word. Sorry, I´m fascinated with linguistics.
I found it funny (thus, found putting it into the humor section appropriate) and to my taste the repetitions made it even more entertaining.
The "bleep!cking" part is probably a holdover from when I had to submit this in class.
It's okay do say "de-lose," using "lose" as a verb (Plus it sounds so very much like "delouse"). If I used "loser" as a noun I'd have to add something else, like "deloserify." Your logic makes sense, though. If you want to get into linguistics, the real made-up words in here are "grubbish," "nerdly" and "loserly."
