The state department says DoNuts T.®ump's nominee for US ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert, a former Fucked News anchor, has withdrawn, giving as her excuse her fear that a colossal asteroid hurtling through space at nearly 20,000mph might interesect with the Earth & expose as ridiculous her earlier comment that "the D-day landings are evidence of the longstanding relationship between Washington & Berlin" · former US cardinal defrocked for sex crimes against minors & adults, in many of which he defrocked his victims · “I didn’t need to do this, but I’d rather do it much faster” said DoNuts T.®ump, declaring a national emergency because Tristan Thompson has been caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian again & Demi Lovato is back in Rehab · spare-courier to the Precedent, Perk Mince, told the annual Munich Security Conference in Germany that he brings "greetings from POTUS Mark XLV.” At this, there was a complete silence from the crowd.

a tropical sunset

I am one of those conserv-
atives who has decided
that practicing self-love in

secret is a misreading of
Hegel. I know the link
between systemic failure

& the vasodilatory effects
of sexual misconduct is not
defined at this time; but still

think it provides a genuine
though theoretical alternative
to mainstream economics.

A line from Childish Gambino

I count each square. The use
of hemocytometer trypan blue
exclusion tells me which squares
are occupied by something other

than holographic images & which
are able to populated by house-
hold items. Vacancy is everything
in my job. I got furniture to move.

through a wire fence

Drugs are short-term inter-
ventions most often faced at the

zoo. We are at a coal face that
bears minimal resemblance to

the religious feasting of humans.
A well maintained aircraft is vital.
