I don’t know why I keep hearing people say starlings are brood parasites. I mean, they don’t even look like the species that are.
It’s actually kind of hard to argue that humans are parasites of most wild animals, as opposed to just being predators of them. We’re more likely to do stuff that kills them outright, instead of subtly weakening them until they die an earlier death with fewer offspring (though of course we have our ways of doing that too).
As for domestic livestock… we do choose when and how they die, and we do make their lives pretty miserable until then… but, by deliberately breeding them and keeping them away from predators, we actually increase their populations. So, in a sense, we ARE the symbiotic brainworms that Abby’s afraid of.
John loves me even if I don’t use conditioner on my hair.
If “mouse” is singular of “mice”
And “louse” is singular of “lice”
Then “house” is singular of “hice”
And “grouse” is singular of “grice”
And “blouse” is singular of “blice.”
And “douse” should mean “one of the dice”
And “spouse” should mean “a pinch of spice”
And “rouse” should mean “a grain of rice.”
Grammatic crises are a vice I suffer daily at least twice
Or thrice, or sometimes even frice.
If we could just resolve this crise,
My goodness, wouldn’t that be nice.
that is a real song and it is awful.
one may ask why “everybody wins” in Abby’s second example, when she is only stating ways in which the child-haver benefits. the answer is that not having any kids is so awesome it counts as winning regardless of any other circumstances.
Abby’s podcast is not actually sponsored by any drug company, she just wants her one-and-a-half viewers to think it’s popular enough to have a sponsor.
From time to time my brain tries to make up more lyrics to the infamous Doctor Who/Doc Brown rap battle on Youtube, and the ones it came up with today are:
I was born of woman; I’m the fruit of a womb.
Your mama don’t exist; you’re the Fruit of the Loom!
Cathy actually does feel that Abby is hilarious, and feels it so strongly that she couldn’t help saying it. But to preserve her own air of superiority, she had to stifle her laugh and infuse her voice with a tone of sarcasm. She is sadly trapped in her own self-image.
Abby is arrogant enough to assume she really was the first person to come up with each idea she posted. Or at least that she deserves the attention more than someone who came up with it even later than she did.
