I Have Some Questions…

(Disclaimer: I realize more than a few of the questions already have answers, and in some cases, multiple answers. This is because I gotta come up with 750 words and not all my ideas are Pulitzer worthy, OKAY?)

I am on occasion, either through irritation, inspiration or both, compelled to ask questions regarding the planet on which I make my home with seven billion other roommates, some of whom are kinda assholes.

I don’t really expect answers, but I figure, fuck it…It might be entertaining.

So here we go:

  • If ‘White Power’ is something to be proud of, why do White supremacists take such pains to hide their faces when they do racist shit?
  • Do Trump supporters actually understand how the Internet works?
  • Why isn’t there a kill switch that erases your Internet search history when you die?
  • Why do homophobes watch so much gay porn?
  • Who is watching all the porn in Utah?
  • Why does Pornhub have higher ethics standards than the US Congress?
  • Why do the British think acting like a loud drunk coked-up obnoxious dickhead on a flight is ‘having fun on a vacation?’
  • What will it take for conservatives to realize they’re garbage people?
  • Why haven’t we funded research into extending the lifespans of dogs?
  • What is the point of Love Island?
  • How hard was it to write a decent conclusion to Game Of Thrones?
  • Is all the good shit gonna be on Netflix from now on?
  • Will Boris Johnson ever NOT look like an unmade bed?
  • What did the UK ‘win’ with Brexit?
  • Will Brexit supporters ever shut the fuck up about it?
  • How long before they realize just how badly they fucked themselves?
  • Who’s gonna tell Trump just how fucking ridiculous he looks with that shitty cheap fake tan?
  • Why can’t you just exercise once and lose all the weight you want?
  • Why isn’t weed legal right fucking now?
  • Why does the first beer of the day taste so good?
  • Is there some secret difficulty involved with thinking that I haven’t heard of?
  • Why haven’t we renamed ‘common sense’ ‘uncommon sense’ yet?
  • America: The whole freaking out over wearing a mask thing…what’s up with that?
  • Is there some way we can point coronavirus in the direction of Ted Cruz?
  • How much money does Jeff Bezos actually need?
  • Was Whole Foods created to appeal to a specific target demographic…like the entitled middle class closet racist asshole health foodie market?
  • Can we trade Betsy De Vos and get back either Prince or Bowie? Asking for a friend…
  • Do Americans and Australians realize their countries were originally penal colonies no one actually voluntarily wanted to go to?
  • Why aren’t we listening to Black women more often?
  • What’s the big deal about a Black woman becoming President?
  • Could I flirt with Viola Davis and Danai Gurira at the same time?
  • Why isn’t beer an acceptable breakfast drink?
  • Why can’t a Bloody Mary count as one of your five-a-day?
  • How is it that politicians who work one third of the year, call people who work 40-hour work weeks ‘lazy?’
  • Is being a selfish stupid asshole a prerequisite for being a Libertarian?
  • Will there be a point where Kanye West goes so far up his own ass that he essentially folds into himself and disappears from existence?
  • Can we have a massive global block party once we get rid of Covid-19? And if so, can I DJ?
  • If ‘All Lives Matter,’ then what’s the big deal about wearing a mask?
  • If I ask Chris Evans really nicely, do you think he’ll let me touch his butt?
  • Don’t you think it should be glaringly obvious by now that the people most likely to become cops are the people that shouldn’t be cops in the first place?
  • Why are people in apartments so fucking noisy?
  • Why do all the people I really like live in fucking Narnia or some bullshit like that?
  • Why are seagulls such assholes?
  • Why isn’t there a country where orgies just spontaneously happen?
  • Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?
  • Who actually let the dogs out? Who? WHO?
  • Why are we STILL having to deal with racism in the twentyfuckingfirst century? REALLY?
  • Do you think Robert Kardashian had a clue as to what he was unleashing on the world?
  • Does Drake realize he’s from Toronto and poses no real threat to anyone?
  • Why can’t men’s leather pants have a sign inside them that says ‘You must be under 40 to wear these?’
  • Why do White middle class British girls think getting drunk and twerking to Single Ladies is a good idea?
  • Do Canadian serial killers apologize to their victims?
  • Why haven’t we developed the technology to build amazing spaceships so that we can kick annoying people out of airlocks?
  • What if the Hokey Pokey is really what it’s all about?…

To be continued….
