“Are My Cramps God’s Way of Punishing Me For Not Procreating?” and Other Questions for Mike Pence

I originally wrote this last year before the election, but never published it. I thought it might still be relevant now. 

“I am a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican,” Mike Pence announced last July at the RNC. Funny — at the time, I thought he was also the de facto OBGYN for every single woman in Indiana. Maybe he was just trying to not brag about his qualifications? Maybe he was hoping we’d forget?

And forget we did. In all the talk about Trump, Sessions, Flynn, Spicer, and the rest of the merry band of idiots in the administration, it seems Forgettable Pence remains, well, forgettable.

The White House ones said things like “You only YOLO once”  or had young adults doing stupid shit and getting hurt. I highly encourage you to go look at them all and wonder why they apparently let someone over 55 design these.

Why is there an Adderall shortage?

That cat image isn’t mine.
Neither are the ducks.
Or YOYOLOO. Thanks Obama.
AND FUCK YOU, SALLIE MAE.
