Found this ad in a Nickelodeon magazine from 2004.
LOOK AT THIS LITTLE MUPPET
Polish legend has it that the bright warmth of the sun must shine upon the earth on Saturday, if only for a brief moment, in remembrance of Christ’s infancy when on that day Mary would wash immaculately clean his swaddling clothes so that Sunday might find delight in witnessing the Baby God in pure and fresh-scented dress.
This is literally what my parents had to do with me.
so the saddest shortest story is attributed to hemingway:
"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
and this came to me at breakfast and i thought it was hilarious.
Oh, that’s puce.
Here’s a handy dandy color reference chart for you artists, writers, or any one else who needs it! Inspired by this post x

God said to John, “Come forth and receive eternal life.”
But John came fifth and won a toaster.
You say not all men are monsters?
Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned.
Go ahead. Eat a handful.
Not all M&Ms are poison.
Well maybe Im just talking out of my ass here but as a female Im going to explain why I think this argument is incredibly flawed and wrong. Feel free to disagree with me.
Every time you go out in your car another driver might crash into you and kill you. Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. Go ahead. Drive your car.
Every time you eat a full meal you risk food poisoning. CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne diseases. Go ahead. Eat dinner.
Other women have abused me, called me names, and made me feel like shit. I have known other women to be violent and aggressive. And I have heard of cases of women murdering men, women, and children. There may be less cases of women murdering, but theres still a few poison M&Ms there, arent there?
This is NOT me saying that sexism doesnt exist. This is NOT me saying that violence against women ISNT an issue. This is NOT me saying that we shouldn’t talk about violence against women.
Because sexism DOES exist. Violence against women is a SERIOUS issue that needs to be considered. And YES it is more serious than violence against men, I think. And YES, we NEED to talk about it.
But supporting the idea that ALL MEN should be viewed as monsters is WRONG. Men are not M&Ms, and neither are women. We are people. Who can learn, who can be taught, who are different from each other, who have different experiences, attitudes, and beliefs. You can not damn an entire group of people, gender, race, nationality, by the actions of a few. This is the EXACT kind of argument that I hear people use to validate the idea that Muslims cant be trusted because they might be terrorists. Its disgusting and wrong then and its wrong here.
Protect yourselves. Look for signs that someone is dangerous. But don’t treat an entire sex as a tainted batch. That is going to get us nowhere.
Living your entire life in fear is not worth it.
