Annie’s Mailbox, 23 July 2014:Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Hurting Mama,” whose son texted her “Happy Birthday.” The first time my son sent me a text to wish me a happy birthday, I called him to inform him that if it begins with “Happy” or “Merry,” it is not a textable moment. I didn’t…
Also they made just the fucking wackest music.
he is so shocked
Seriously, how fucking racist do you have to be for that to be the only way you can have fun?
There needs to be a word for the moment when you see someone who looks almost EXACTLY like your first girlfriend.
That’s correct. Do better, people.
This comic is advice my 27 year old self would give my 17 year old self.
Whether or not my 17 year old self would listen is a different story.

Pencil, ink, and opaque watercolors on paper
This watercolor belongs to the larger tradition of Company painting, or works made by Indian artists for English patrons (usually employees of the East India Company, hence the name of the school). Its anonymous artist is believed to have been in the circle of painters who worked for Sir Elijah Impey, Chief Justice of Bengal from 1774 to 1782, and his wife. They collected specimens of Indian flora and fauna at their estate in Calcutta and commissioned local artists to portray them. Although originally intended as a scientific record, the Impey natural studies are considered among the strongest achievements of the Company School.
