The Chicken and the Egg

Preface: The following story is so incredibly nonsensical that Donald J. Trump is the only person who understood every word of it. Written as part of a cruel, sick game, four comedy writers were forced against their wills to write a story without communicating with one another and only had one sentence to go off of: “As he looked at the bird semen in front of his omelet, he knew the chicken came before the egg.” Baffled by the vulgar… Keep Reading

Ask Amy – Spookily Single

She moved into his home years ago. She lived alone, with an old tabby cat as her only companion.

According to another teen nearby with a… Keep Reading
