A Most Meaningful and Important Job

***WARNING*** The following is the rather lengthy ranting of an angry, unpopular and rambling lunatic. Proceed of your own free will and choice. *ahem* So, there I was, watching “That 70’s Show.” I do like that show. That’s why I was watching it.

Beware of Monsters

I don’t know who drew this, but it’s amazing! Fun thought for your Halloween night: Remember, the monsters aren’t the creatures in your movies or on TV… you walk among them every. single. day. They’re perfectly hidden, because they look just like everybody else. You may have handed one their change, and they may have thanked you with a smile. You wouldn’t have known, because … Continue reading Beware of Monsters
