    [ words here later on the title and how it's important to mock those who abuse power ]

    Like when Amsterdam put out flags and banners for President Putin's visit

    Or now, as the Cards Against Humanity guys' mission to send thousands of potatoes to the office of Senator Ron Johnson instructing him to hold a town hall meeting already.

    It's moralizing to create these moments of levity.

    (eta I have no idea what's going on with the formatting here, trying to fix it)

    The website didn't allow me to buy a potato, and I'm outside of the US, so I used some other mailing service.
    As in, Ship Your Enemies Glitter. From what seebs said, it won't even be that inconvenient for them.

    OH MY GOD Y'ALL LOOK AT THIS SHIT

    Here is a piece from the WaPo entitled "Trump’s budget makes perfect sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why." And if you read past the headline, it becomes pretty much immediately obvious that this is a) satire and b) an absolutely vicious roasting of Lord Dampnut's budgeting wet dreams.

    IF you read past the headline.

    Which whoever puts together the White House's daily e-newsletter apparently did not do. (can't seem to find permalink to that post yet, so note to self--fix link later)

    BaseDeltaZero Shitposting all night.

    ... I misread this as 'I actually came to this. It's majestic.' Which is... even better, I think.

    However, you're assuming that the e-newsletter guy didn't read it, as opposed to 'read it, and thought it sounded awesome'.


    Frickin golden. It's like something r/Murica would post.

    Grocery store sushi. The kefir that's been sitting in the fridge, untouched, for several weeks now, and which may be Plotting Things. The entire contents of the green bin bag, representing about three months of neglected fridge, especially the half of a moldy butternut squash and the open tin of tomato paste that was just festering with mold. (Spring cleaning is awful and our fridge is terrible.) The bottle of unopened lambic which we got in August.

    My dog with an open yard gate. My brother with my bank card. That bottle of apple juice that I once left on my floor for a week and it fermented.

    An email from a Nigerian prince can totally be legit! Haven't you seen that episode of Flight of the Conchords? I'm pretty sure it was based on a true story. /s
