Week 50 of 2021
Deadly in December.
A large system of tornados plowed through four states last Saturday
. The largest one traveled the length of Taiwan and had a funnel the width of that little piece of Massachusetts that sticks out in the water. It plowed across Arkansas and through Kentucky but dissipated before arriving at fossil fuel loving West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin’s house.

Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was found in contempt late Tuesday
but it’s not like he did something wrong. It’s just that he was subpoenaed by Congress and blew it off.

Liz Cheney’s dramatic reading included the S word at least twice.

In bookkeeping news, a federal judge said Trump is no longer allowed to block Congress from seeing his tax returns. Supposedly the documents reveal how much of a tax write-off he’s been taking for spray tans and hair coifing. Trump is being investigated for fraud
in his home state of New York.
Breaking up with Baboons.
Do you need tips on how to break up with someone?
Well it looks like baboons have the answer. If you’re trying to figure out how to separate from a friend group, look no further than primates. Maybe when everyone grabs bananas, just say “I’m just going to lay here and scratch various body parts.” We know some people pattern their life after monkeys, but this study is particularly insightful
