Caption: Hi, this is click-whistle-chirp. Hi. … wait, who? Did you know humans are not the only sentient species on earth? Almost every species is sentient, contrary to thousands of years of racist propaganda. They think, they feel pain, they act with intent, they feel emotions ... especially the octopods. Never get on an octopus's bad side. House of Java Cybercafe. They've just never felt the needs to speak human languages before. Before? Before what? ... Wait ... am I talking to a dolphin? The sentient species of the earth would like you to please consider not voting for Donald Trump.

Caption: What's a polite and subtle way to let someone know his breath reeks? You could try the old "take out a piece of gum for yourself, and offer them one too." I invented that one back in nineteen and twenty-nine, when I offered a stick to old Jebediah Stinkman. Let me rephrase: What's a less subtle way to tell someone his breath reeks? You could try leaving a note.

No, momma, that doesn't sound like static, it sounds more like you hissing "gwaaoowaaoo." Click. (Originally published on 2012-03-02).

Caption: Facebook Messages. From Sasha Mitchell. Hi, Lemont, I'm just checking in 'cause I haven't heard from you in a while. How are you, LB? Not so good. A witness testified in court that I told him I met an actual demon … It's true, I did. I told Susan about it, and she thinks I'm crazy. She doesn't believe me. Nobody believes me. I believe you, Lemont. Say what? I know we haven't seen each other in 16 years, but Lemont I remember you like we've never been apart. You're the smartest, most honest, most sane man I know. Anyone who doesn't believe you must not really know you. ... Not like I do. Man, why'd you to be happily married? Who said "happily"? Nothing bad can come of this.

Caption: Facebook Messages. From Sasha Mitchell. Lemont … It's like 1994 all over again! First I get back in touch with you … and just now I got a message from Susan Garcia! She and I were closer than sisters back in college. I don't know why she stopped talking to me. Do you remember Susan? Yeah, I hang out with her all the time. Just today she was feeling bad about not asking how my court case was going. She thought I was feeling like nobody cared. I told her not to worry, 'cause YOU were giving me moral support. Tap tap tap tap tap. OMG ... Lemont ... What? What's wrong? Tap tap tap tap tap tap tap. Um ... Nothing. You're so cute sometimes. Maybe we can ALL hang out! Tap tap tap tap tap tap tap.

It'll remind me of a time when I was young and had my whole life ahead of me, and hadn't screwed it up yet with mistakes and bad decisions. DELETE DELETE DELETE. Hey, Sasha, You owe me a photo. xoxo Lemont. SEND.

It's bad enough the creep even showed up. What's he up to? If he has something to say, I wish he'd say it and move on. I think he said it to me. I think he's dying ...

Caption: HEALTH. Eating right: Talk to you brain at mealtime. Frank, this article says people overeat because it takes twenty minutes for the brain to get the message that the stomach has been filled! It says before you feel like you've eaten enough, tell your brain that you're satisfied and it's time to stop eating! I can't do that --- It's considered bad manners to talk with your mouth full!

Caption: Lemont calls the paper. What do you mean James Olsen's not in? I need to know if he got those Iran protest stories I filed. … What do you mean "elbow strain"? … Yes, I know Michael Jackson died. What's that have to -- Every editorial cartoonist in the country sent drawings of Michael Jackson moonwalking through the pearly gates. Mr. Olsen started shouting "Lazy! Cloying! Aaarggh!" Wha -- you're breakin' up. It sounded like you said "He personally beat them all down with a sock full of quarters."

A judge says the OJ case should be thrown out. That's not fair. What right do lawyers have to criticize OJ? Well, they all passed their bar exam. Then they should close that bard down. What bar? The one that sell the rotten OJ! This is why I eat at Denny's.
