At least something got him out of Congress

True, and who better to help head up TRUTH social than the man who filed frivolous lawsuits because his feelings were hurt by a Twitter troll cosplaying a cow on his family farm? Very 1st amendment, Devin

Santa Fe Opera used to do Wagner, Mozart and... weird Russian shit. I mean, it was Santa Fe. So I saw Serov's Judith at the age of 15. I Shostakovich's The Nose at like 9. Which... I mean, this dude's nose jumps off his face and becomes a member in parliament, with epaulets and everything. Then a buddy's drama class did Ionesco like sophomore year in high school.

I guess what I'm saying is I grew up steeped in Soviet/Russian satire and propaganda about the overreaching and absurd powers of The State and I'm less than cool with how topical these memories feel. Dude's nose in epaulets/congressman suing an imaginary cow? Kinda same/same.

Dude I feel as if Devin Nunes pulling a mealworm should have more heraldry around it

Every now and then the popular Fox pundits will cut to a very rehearsed teleprompter reading from the mealworm, in studio H. He reads so well! Everybody knows he can read. The cool kids in Studio A read a lot, too, so why is the poor (but VERY talented) mealworm corralled to meal about seven studios down? The mealworm is working up the courage to call Rupert's direct line and ask.

It is hard, being a mealworm.

I gave up on Faulkner's The Sound And The Fury because I decided life was too short but damn if that ain't Benjy.

Never read it. My book ends with a mealworm realizing his lot in life. His biggest (and final) impact is to ruin someone's sandwich inside of a ZipLock bag.

I'm just going to keep going, thanks.

This is Mr. Two Caterpillars:

If you can identify which of the 12 thumbnails have two angry caterpillars, you can also learn anger. It's CAPTCHA. But you can learn anyway if you misclick or miscount or mistype, it's not a dealbreaker.

I have to attack his appearance b/c there are ABSOLUTELY NO LOGICAL SHORTCOMINGS from mr. 2 ctrplrs WHATSOEVER, AND HE WOULD TOTALLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT RHETORIC AND PRESENTATION PALES IN COMPARISON TO RAW FACTS
