Last night, as America ran headfirst into the arms of an Orange Armageddon, my lesbian aunt-in-law sent me this text:
"Do you think they will repeal marriage equality?"
I didn't have time to respond before shit got extra dark:
"Or will his supporters just beat me to a pulp while wearing their white sheets and then go out for a beer?"
If y'all are anything like me, then you're flabbergasted that a Cheeto just became our country's President. Welp, them's the breaks, folks. I did my part and voted for somebody not him. It was up to the rest of you to do the same so that we didn't turn over our nuclear codes to a carrot-colored man toddler who used his national stage to defend his penis size.
That being said, I can try to distract you, and I've opted to do it by asking my friends and my readers to share pics of the precious pets who make them smile in the face of End Times.
Y'all made me happy like woah with your responses, and hopefully a quick scroll through these images makes you forget, if only for a second, that the sun seems to shine a little less brightly today.
So, here goes:
Lana and Dr. Kitty:
Bravo and Tango Foxtrot:
Brodie and Decker:
Duke, Jase, and Tessa:
Edward Francy and Alice:
Sweet Penguin (and, yes, it's a stuffed animal, but it made me smile, so it's included):
Heidi and Chelsea:
Ella and Luna:
Jonesi and Pickle:
Chloe and Leo:
And, finally, you have my furbabies in their Halloween costumes as James Paw-nd and Pussy Galore:
Oh, shit. You know what I just realized? President Elect Trump openly advocates grabbing pussies. Maybe I shouldn't provide him with a list of poor pussies for the grabbing. Maybe the Internet has a solution for these poor kitties?
Yup. It does. Good. This should work:
True story: Life would be super swell if we all embraced our OMG side instead of living a Facebook-friendly existence. So, let it out. How pissed are you REALLY that Trump won? If you're not pissed, why? No, seriously, without judgement, I'm curious as to what drew you to our new President elect? Which pet was your favorite? Include a pic of your pet below, and I'll like the hell out of it. Anyway, I love you all, no matter who you voted for or your political preference. Let's just be awesome to each other, mmmmkay? Feel free to disclose details. You're safe here.
