The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

From our family to yours...

You know...Sloth Day.

December 26th.

The most beautiful day of the year, when young and old wear stretch pants, eat leftovers and take naps.

May Sloth Day be filled with joy and lethargy for all!

This is the last Clay Baboons post of 2012. Thanks for reading! I'll see you again in the new year!

Choose Your Own Apocalypse

So they say that the world is ending today. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I'm actually having a good hair day. But on the other hand, nothing livens up a party like a good apocalypse.

The question - of course - is not if the world is ending. The question is how.

Over the past year, I've written about a wide variety of horrific and deadly things, any of which would be more than worthy of its own apocalypse.

Out of all of the terrors that I've highlighted on this blog, however, one stands out as the most sinister, the most malevolent, the most dangerous.

They're everywhere. There are an estimated one million ants for every human on Earth, billions of whom live in one global mega-colony spanning three continents. Take a second to roll those words around in your mouth: global mega-colony. They operate for the good of the colony, with no concern whatsoever for each individual life. Some species of ants enslave entire colonies. And, as though that weren't enough already, some ants are even zombies.

100,000,000,000,000,000 ants in the world, all of them working obsessively for the good of their ever-growing colonies. The antpocalypse is pretty much inevitable, as far as I can tell.

Zombies? Bring them on. Anyone with an attitude and a sword can take on a few slow, bumbling zombies.

Ants, on the other hand? We're completely helpless against ants.

The end is coming.

He's Coming...

Am I the only person who finds that song creepy?

I mean...the lyrics. And the grammar.

Failing Every Day a Little Bit More Than You

Marianne and Julie wrote a book! And look, I helped with the cover!

I've been reading Marianne and Julie's blogs for nearly a year now. They're both talented writers, the kind of writers who make you laugh out loud and then - when you're complacent and smiling and least expecting it - write beautiful words that tear your heart out, throw it on the floor and stomp on it. So I was excited to learn that they were putting out a book. And even more excited when they asked me to make stuff for the cover.

Check out the book on Amazon or on Facebook.

Happy reading!

Completely unrelated: it's 12/12/12 today. That's kind of cool. Right?
