@j-i-a I can see it, though the very beginning kept cutting off for me, so I actually thought the man was saying "i'm so happy to be married to your mom, though i know it hasn't always been easy for you" (as opposed to, "i'm so happy to *be marrying* your mom.") as in, "Mom and Dad have been having horrible marital problems and maybe almost divorced, so thanks for sticking with us, kid - and here's a necklace!"
makes the actual commercial look better.
On A Poem by Kofi Awoonor, the Ghanaian Poet and Diplomat Killed in This Weekend's Terrorist Attack in Nairobi
I am wordless, but I am so glad you posted something. As the stories of those who were killed come out, I am discovering connections to them through friends, and it feels like the one time social media is making us all more, not less human, in grief and disbelief.
Oh guys. I don't know if anyone's still on this thread, but I finally opened my New Yorker, and the illustration to that article about the dude who wants to start "a new generation of ladies' magazines" is driving me insane!
@visions&revisions Yes, I, too, found it to be an unexpectedly uncomfortable conversation.
@ColdFinger or possibly
50% telling my friends i love them when drunk
50% laughing while stuffing my face while stoned
98% telling love interest about the penis hole mind control?
(2% using the words "penis hole.")
@MandaX Exactly. Also, I (potentially) chat with Cosmo celebrities online!
@honey cowl I cried too! Man. My mom is really smart and I'm sure has made choices in her life that I'm sure were difficult. But I don't know if she could ever be as candid and self-aware, at least with me.
Oh, I'm so glad you posted the cunt punt! Because the first thing is completely unbearable, and I'd much rather laugh at the crazy lady who wrote that e-mail.
@ColdFinger Oof, guys, I feel like an ass after reading more of the series. I've got nothing but horror now, not plattitudes about how complicated adoption is...
