If you’re one of the many people who always got vague creep vibes from comedian Dane Cook, consider this a validation of your intuition!
For our younger readers and those who may have blocked out of their memory for mental health reasons, Cook was the biggest thing in comedy circa 2006.

It’s great that she’s so happy, but it’s not hard to see why so many people are concerned on Kelsi’s behalf.
And the timeline of Dane and Kelsi’s relationship isn’t doing much to assuage those fears.
