Twitter, please do not punch Derrick Wyatt. Or Eljay, that’s Lanny Lathem, he helps make BotCon toys. Or, you know, maybe just avoid the punching in general, even if you are a flock of many tiny birds that can lift a whale.

there is basically no purer image of the fan convention experience than a dour-faced voice actor holding a ridiculous, possibly blasphemous, piece of fan art in someone’s badly lit hotel room.
Oh man it’s the cross-dressing sheriff from Deck the Halls.
that’s also the voice of Optimus Primal and some other guys.

I would buy this book for that cover alone.
I already liked Old Economy Steve. So, it was only natural I’d like the Scumbag Baby Boomer meme as well.
I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry.
the truth, it burns
Keep in mind, we will control what old folks homes they go to. Pick the crooked one.

Hey, the entirety of my childhood.
It is so big.

And every day at school, he would get a free lunch from a government program. He told Eloise he didn’t want a free lunch. He wanted his own lunch. One in a brown paper bag, just like the other kids.
He wanted one, he said, because he knew a kid with a brown paper bag had someone who cared for him. This is what the Left does not understand.
Paul Ryan shames kids from low-income families who get free lunches.by suggesting that their families don’t care for them.
Another made-up story as told by a lifelong government worker that the government is bad.
So we should take away his food so he has nothing to eat?
The Pink Choice
Even though many people seem to be open about homosexuality, it turned out to be untrue when I showed people photos of homosexual couples in intimate moments. Most of them found the photos disgusting and unacceptable. This reaction was a source of inspiration to me. My goal was to make photos about homosexuals that incite feelings of romantic love that is natural and beautiful. I chose to capture casual daily activities of the couples that can be familiar to anyone. By doing so, I hope to make the audience become interested, then gradually empathize with homosexual people.
Many projects/artworks on homosexuality in Vietnam tend to focus on either deviances (especially in movies, with images of homosexuals portrayed in ridiculous clothing and make-up, mincing, shrewish or rude manners…) or symbolic images. In photography, homosexuals are not presented as themselves in pictures. And if they are, they’re usually photographed from behind or with masks on. These all foster weird and absurd images of homosexuals rather then present more understanding perspectives. In turn, homosexuals become even more intimidated and isolated.
The Pink Choice has a different approach as it seeks out personal stories using direct language: documentary photography to capture real moments and real people.
Moreover, stories about homosexuality in Vietnam and also in the world usually end in tragedy, especially in movies. On one hand, this tragic style of storytelling can make audience become more sympathetic and understanding of the difficulties that homosexuals experience. On the other hand, the drama of homosexuals can also cause misunderstandings that lives of homosexuals are vulnerable and regretful, and that the choice to “come out” is an incredible effort against the community’s way of life. The point is, in real life, there are many homosexual people who live happily with their identity. There are homosexual couples who love, nurture and build a happy family life together.
The Pink Choice is a series of photos about the love of homosexual couples which focus on living spaces, the affectionate touches, and more importantly, the synchronized rhythm of lovers sharing life together. Viewers may not feel the personalities of the subjects in the photos, but hopefully they can feel the warmth of their love and caring. In way, I wanted to show what I see of homosexual people and not how they see themselves.
