Had good laughs at the 50 American states and the Longmire altered romance novel covers. I thought Henry Kissinger was already deservedly dead but no, he's 97 so someone's going to win that tontine soon, I would think.

My old Doctor told me when he started his practice he was moonlighting as the night shift Doctor at an oil refinery. Being nights and a seedy neighborhood he started carrying a gun in his pocket. One night he went to use the toilet and the gun went off when it hit the floor putting a hole in the ceiling tile. A couple guys came in but he said the noise must have been from the chem lab on the other side of the wall. After they left he plugged the hole with wet toilet paper.

human_not_bees I salute you.

And I find it, I dunno,
ironic/troubling/confusing, that the
best (and my current favorite)
character on TWD is Negan. . .

Still wrestling with the
believability of his backstory.
