Under the Button fans are loyal. You've laughed with us, you've smirked with us when the joke was fine but, like, not amazing, and you've gotten concerned for us when it seemed like our writers were letting it all hang out! Our die-hard fans know — sometimes, UTB writers seem very sad and not ok : (.

Our fans are not wrong! Some of our writers should get some help right now. Take this quiz to help puzzle through which writers should seek professional help.
