Two Bugs in an Office with a Severed Head

Detail of 'Bug Martini' by Adam Huber, 4 May 2016.You know, this time we don’t get to blame Adam; the white-collar rank and file would not have these problems if they had collective bargaining rights.

On the upside, the old lady was already dead; it’s not like the li’l bugger went on a spree.

Which raises another point about spree violence: Economic security might help reduce the number of incidents. So would good mental health benefits.

No, I don’t really have a plan for accomplishing all that, but, hey, if Bernie Sanders can make it this far without studying his own platform, it seems worth mentioning.

Yeah, you know, maybe I should just stick with bad puns and perverse vapidity for filler.

Bug Stuff

It is true that a night without thinking about stuff would probably do a mind some good. So, of course stuff occurs, and the mind forgets about not thinking about stuff and then checks on stuff. And then suddenly there is stuff to do.

No, really, tell me to stuff it, but this is just filler and I ain’t stoppin’.

Except when I am.Detail of 'Bug Martini' by Adam Huber, 5 June 2015.

Like, you know …

… now …

… now might be good.

Ah, fuck stuff it.

Oh! Well, fuckin’ great. Just fuckin’ great. Went and blew the joke. I mean, fuck, you know? It’s just supposed to be an easy, obnoxious fucking joke just like Adam does, and I go and stuff it all the fuck up.

God, why does this stuff always have to fuckin’ happen?
