Greetings Members of the East Coast Aquarium,

This is the aquarium’s sharks, here to remind you that we are not the fast moving, bloodthirsty killers from those high octane movies you’ve all seen, so stop treating us as such for your amusement. We believe it is not asking too much to educate yourself just a little before coming to visit, in order to avoid creating an uncomfortable situation by trying to make us go against our roles as an educational exhibit. We’ve chosen to highlight some examples to better convey what we’re talking about.

First off, we are NOT the…

WASHINGTON — It’s been a rough holiday season for Americans hoping to get another round of economic relief as unemployment and evictions remain at record highs during the coronavirus pandemic. But the nation’s elected representatives in the House and Senate made progress Friday with a bipartisan vote declaring that none of them know what the hell is going on.

“This is what the Constitution was designed for, and we successfully upheld it with this vote,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was seen wearing a Pandora bracelet to show support for “dreamers,” gun violence victims and many other at-risk communities.

May your Christmas be filled with joy, and an unnaturally strong sense of upper middle class polish!

Education isn’t supposed to help children.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Smith,

Upon looking over your son Justin’s performance in our Childhood Review And Performance (CRAP) evaluation, it is clear he has failed (miserably we might add) and does not conform to our style of teaching, leaving us no choice but to assume he has ADHD.

As you know, the CRAP test is set up in such a way that if your child does not successfully catch a ball, recall a beef Wellington recipe word-for-word, or say that their favorite Star Trek character is Spock, it can only mean the presence of a learning disability.

We first…


We’ll have to fire you if you keep delighting the customers and refuse to be a corporate clog

Diner Under a Dollar (or DUD) is a restaurant chain that prides itself on fast, efficient, okay service. It is a huge corporation where the atmosphere of its locations is family friendly, manufactured and shallow. Every meal is synthetic crap that tries to pass itself off as homemade, and every employee gives their utmost forced smile. New hire, Ollie, doesn’t seem to understand that we aren’t going for excellence.


OVERVIEW: You’ve been at our corporate eatery for almost three months, and in your ninety-day evaluation, I must point out that your service is not what we…

In what might be my most controversial article ever to date, I know I have ignited the rage of my fellow Trekkies through this article’s title, alone. So allow me to clarify before I dive in.

I’m not about to say this is a misunderstood gem of an episode or even that I think it’s one of the best episodes in the series. It’s definitely forgettable compared the onslaught of substantially higher quality episodes that’d follow, and some might even call it the calm before the [perfect] storm in that regard. …

“Bay State of Mind” by Jay-Z & Alicia Keys

In Boston

Titletown that wins are made of

There’s nothin’ you can do

When you play Boston

These teams will make you feel like a noob

Sports teams will aggravate you

Let’s hear it for Boston

“Boston State of Mind” by Billy Joel

I’ve drank in all the Irish pubs,

Eaten the baked beans, and clam cuisines.

Been high in those seats on top the…

A Franchise needs to be at its most identifiable. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was a great game in its own right with thrilling traversal, intense firefights, and carefully crafted stealth, as well as breathtaking set pieces, detailed character models, and some truly engaging story moments. However, one way to set a franchise back quickly is by following trends, and while Shadow is nowhere near as much of an offender as other AAA games before or after it, it does come close at times.

For example, the world of Paititi and several other hub areas, feature a merchant. Certainly not…
