OK. Coming at this with zero knowledge of Kim Kardashian. I don’t “Keep Up With The Kardashians”. Nor do I follow Kim or her friends on Twitter. Honestly, I don’t give a flying fuck about her recent claim to fame as America’s biggest, greasiest butt. Instead, I spend more of my time reading about real humans […]

And so they told him he should teach. And so they told him he should work. And so they told him he would never find work. And so they told him he would fail. And so they told him he should change his ideas. And so they told him he should wear a suit. Because […]

Wall Street Bull

Outside, the street vendor flipped a hotdog on its edge so that he could inspect the readiness of the meat.
