Smithsonian Publishes Controversial Article on Jellyfish

Smithsonian Publishes Controversial Article on Jellyfish:  An article in Smithsonian Magazine claims that jellyfish are essentially a boneless, bloodless and brainless species whose mouth also doubles as their anus.  Now I have no idea what the Smithsonian has against jellyfish, but this is the kind of hurtful name-calling is not exactly what one would expect from a respected scientific journal and it needs to stop now.…

Challenge: Personal Narrative - Bitch Stole My Sedaris

Divorce is not fun. I realize I’m stating the obvious here. Even if you know you will be a million times happier or safer afterwards, the “getting there” sucks. Telling your family. Telling your friends. Wondering which side the mutual friends are going to take. Dividing the assets. It is all just a giant list of sucky adulting.

John and I had about as amicable a divorce as you can. We agreed to terms and had a paralegal take care of the paperwork. He got the house and I got my…

Challenge: Humor

I’ve written satirical stuff but I’m not up for trying to do that here. I notice a lot of people quote things rather than create things, so I’ll do that here. This is a joke from my childhood, probably early junior high.

The kid behind him jabs him in the back with a pencil, he…

Laughing at Disabilities: Humor Challenge Fails

I'm not going to be jumping in with the "Challenge" idea promoted here and underway.

I expected that soon enough, it would flop. 

Past tense. Flopped.

One of the posts now has taken a disgusting turn and seeks to derive laughs by mocking an illness which creates great disability and ultimately can lead to death.

Having had family members who suffered with Parkinson's Disease ( no, this is not my slice of life contribution ) I am particularly offended by…
