Colin Slark | Editor In Chief The entire world received a massive shock at the beginning of March as Timothy Sparwood, 34, of the unincorporated community of Red Rock, passed a motion of non-confidence against the planet Earth. “It’s just a real mess, you know?” Sparwood said as he painted a protest sign. “Like, is anything this planet and its inhabitants are doing, actually, like, good?” Sparwood is the President of the Trapper St. Senate, a newly-formed legislative body that claims to hold dominion over the entire planet. Curiously, the only member of this Senate is Sparwood, a problem that Sparwood claims is not his fault: “I sent letter to everyone, okay? Everyone. Only, I couldn’t use Canada Post, because that reaffirms the power of a government that doesn’t speak for me. I appointed Larry, you know Larry, like, from the end of the road? No, the other one. He’s the Postmaster General.

Sparky Dundee | Guest Contributor A recent trip to Best Buy revealed an unwelcome bit of news: stores have noticed the rise of companies such as Amazon whose entire business model is online sales with little overhead, and they want to a piece of that action. A few moments of shocked conversation with a cashier and trying to explain how the online model works demonstrated that Best Buy has no idea of what the online shopping model is based...

Jordan Tucker | Guest Contributor One of my dearest friends is defending her Master’s thesis. My friend is a great genius, and her thesis being approved (or whatever the terminology is, I am not a grad student, I am a now but a simple writer type who does not need to comprehend words) definitely merits some sort of free meal. A mutual friend and I decided to band together to create this surprise meal. We thought that doing so...
