Whites Riot Over Pumpkins!!!

Of course Twitter went bananas.

No word yet whether any whites were shot, either with hands in the air or full of pumpkins. 1

Pumpkins – the very definition of first world annoyances problems.

{Anyone else remember this on the white-on-white epidemic of violence problem?}

  1. There is no little irony in the situation: whites rioting over pumpkins, overturning cars and putting people at risk and not even a single rubber bullet was fired? Is it any wonder the majority of citizens don’t understand the institutional racism they swim in?

KC Royals Must Be Destroyed

Congratulations to the Kansas City Royals!

Their improbable run to the World Series is one of the best postseason stories in baseball history. In just a few weeks, the Royals have transformed themselves from the pinnacle of baseball irrelevance to an unstoppable force.

Now, of course, they must be destroyed.

Baseball is no longer America’s pastime. Neither is football. No, no, America’s latest and greatest pastime is tearing down the very thing that has been placed on a pedestal not five whole minutes earlier.

“Look at that amazing thing! Let’s knock it down and watch it shatter!”

“Woooo! Yeah! It looks so much cooler all busted apart!”

Let the Kansas City Royals Hating Begin
