Why, indeed, am I still doing this? I don’t mean “why am I still doing this?” That’s easy enough to answer: because it’s the right thing to do. I also don’t mean “why am I still doing this?” That’s even easier: because we haven’t won yet. What I want to know is, why am I […]

Why are we here? What is the purpose of la Park d’Unamusement? F*ck if I know. Just somewhere to upload pictures of kitties in a sink, I guess. And chubby sea otters. And gratuitous French girls. And slutty forest faeries. Yes, I do enjoy a nice slutty forest faerie. Anyway, if you must know, the […]

Ladies and gentlemen, sluts and forest faeries: Good evening, and welcome to the first (and quite possibly last) surprise midnight vacation edition of that mildly popular ongoing thought crime, the “Unamusement Park,” brought to you tonight from the top of a pine tree growing in the exact center of a small, circular, heavily bear-infested island […]
