Unfinished fable

I haven’t been able to get anywhere with this one. Have at it.

The fox who wanted to see the world

A fox, wishing to travel the world, joined the crew of a trading vessel bound across the Adriatic. At sea, he discovered the ship principally traded in slaves, a number of which were aboard.

And this sign, which is blank,

is something I am forbidden to say.

The latest thing causing college administrators to lose their minds is an eight-by-ten paper poster that says “it’s okay to be white.”

“The episode is indicative of the efforts white-nationalist groups have made to recruit in and around the nation’s college campuses and other mainstream settings with claims of growing white maltreatment and expanding anti-white discrimination.”

What’s next, blank sheets of paper? They’re white; must be a white supremacist hate poster. People could go to rallys carrying blank posters, just like Hitler. The blank bumper sticker would be just like a swastika, and would get your car vandalized. I myself am covered in blank tattoos, so I must be a fascist.

The cafeteria will need to put more raisins in the rice pudding. One must be so careful these days.

For all the saints

But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them. In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery, And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace. For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality. And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for himself. As gold in the furnace hath he tried them, and received them as a burnt offering. And in the time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble. They shall judge the nations, and have dominion over the people, and their Lord shall reign for ever. They that put their trust in him shall understand the truth: and such as be faithful in love shall abide with him: for grace and mercy is to his saints, and he hath care for his elect. — Wisdom 3:1-9

For All the Saints


I may have discovered a new micro-aggression. As a man, my overcoat is heavier than some. It’s also larger than some, and so takes up more space. The hangers in the closet at work are cheap plastic, so I use two, compounding the offense. All that’s needed is a compelling name.

It’s surprising to see so many liberals and media figures accused of sexual misconduct. A few weeks ago the media turned on Antifa; that surprised me too.
