Humpity Hap Day, GN!

Tree work went okay yesterday; CorporateToolK was pleased with the results and we no longer have to worry about the Tree of Damocles. Backyard will get a lot more sun; we might even be able to grow some grass back there next year.

Saw this earlier in the local digital fish wrap; what teh effing effity eff?!? “Group hosting ‘Come Meet a Black Person’ networking event in Lawrenceville”.

http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/local/group-hosting-come-meet-a-black-person-networking-event-in/article_3051a67a-e1c1-5b85-852c-178aac025fc7.html

A networking event in Lawrenceville offers an interesting twist: a chance to meet a black person.

It may sound like a “Saturday Night Live” skit, but the Come Meet a Black Person event — set for 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Cornerstone, 279 W. Crogan St. — is a real attempt to bridge the racial divide.

It’s the brainchild of Cheryle Moses, the founder of Urban MediaMakers, a group of independent black filmmakers and content creators. Moses dreamed up the networking event as a response of sorts to a 2013 study from the Public Religion Research Institute that showed about 75 percent of white people in America don’t have any nonwhite friends. The study also found that for most whites, their circle of friends is about 91 percent white.

Likewise, about 65 percent of black people don’t have any white friends, and the average social circle for a black American is about 83 percent black.

I presume it’s well-intentioned, but still…

Perhaps I should organize a “Come Meet A Jew” event. 👿

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

As the thread gif clearly demonstrates, Wednesdays are hard!

Good morning, Sven and Paddy!

You HAVE to go, Fatwa.

Despite the fact it’s only about a five minute drive from CasaK, my attendance is so contraindicated…I’m damned near certain I would not be able to contain my sarcasm. (I’m actually pretty serious about that.)

*Facepalm*

Jeebus.

“So there’s no gay hymns in the ceremony?”

Heeeeeeeee!

Or maybe it would be like this:

Or, “Where be the black women at?”
