The tagline for this pair of statues is, and I swear I am not joking...

"GALACTUS IS COMING." ImageImageImageImage
"So, uh, listen, I want you to be my herald."
"COOL! Do I get amazing powers?"
"Oh, yeah, pretty much cosmic gifts, Norrin."
"Do I get to travel to the stars?"
"The universe, Norrin."
"Do I get a cool costume?"
"Galactus? Do I get a cool costume?"
"Listen, about that..."
"So what you're saying is, I'm basically nude."
"...yes, Norrin Radd"
"Just my ass hanging out everywhere I go."
"Yes. It's not a sex thing, honest."
"You SWEAR?"
"Galactus VOWS.
"Well, okay, I guess. I mean, if you promise."
"Good. Now, let's paint your groin silver..."
Oh, my got, when they said Galactus was the 'Eater of Worlds, I didn't know they meant...

If you made a new Traveling Wilburys album, with surviving Wilburys Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne...who else would make a good Wilbury?
My first thought is John Fogerty.
Then maybe Tom Waits.

Money don’t get everything, it’s true
But what it don’t get, cat in shoes
Song, sung blue everybody knows one
Cat in shoe, every garden grows one
Well, I'ma gonna raise a fuss, I'ma gonna raise a holler
I been workin' all Summer just to try to earn a dollar

Sometimes I wonder
What I'ma gonna do
There ain't no cure for
A cat in a shoe

Okay, so this happened. I realize this is a tiny thing in comparison to the out-and-out dangerous levels of racism out there, but it was still gross and infuriating and upsetting.

And obviously I am not a victim of racism, we were just kind of witnesses to something.
Second, I realize this is going to sound a little on-the-nose but it happened, and @rocketspouse and I made a point of memorizing every word, because it was just so...gross and random.

Everyone involved in this story was super-white, including us, remember.
Now, as most of you know, we live in the boonies, the closest town is very small and the few stores that sell supplies and groceries are out of a lot of things. With a second lockdown coming up, we went to the nearest actual city to do some shopping, taking all precautions.

Name a fictional robot you had a crush on.

Please use hashtag

Weird. #MyRoboCrush is the NUMBER TWO trending topic.

And twitter still won’t give me a blue check.

Guys, I don’t like to brag, but I just booked a vacation at the beautiful Four Seasons, which I presume is a hotel, in Philadelphia, next to what I can only assume is some sort of day spa by the lovely name Fantasy Island.

Relaxation, here I come!
The Yelp reviews say you can smell the popular local barbecue ovens next door...mouth watering! Supposedly they use a method called the ‘Delaware Valley fry rub’ that makes the meat just fall off the bone.

This is going to rock, you guys!
Holy crap, I just checked google Earth and a walking corpse keeps tucking in his shirt outside the spa...he’s tucked it in like six times already.

Dude! A little decorum, please!
