Afternoon Snack

Today we present to you our useful tasty fare of internet nonsense, which we hope you will savor like a fine wine, or at least like a $2 bottle from Trader Joe’s (whichever is nearest at hand).

 


 

Wow a Texas dude is suing his date after she texted during the movie, which is some real bullshit, and just a way for this extreme rando to seek his revenge on a lady who obviously felt uncomfortable during their date and was seeking an out. Good job, dude! Way to be an asshole.

 


 

Here is a rad anthology called Comics for Choice — a crowdfunded book that is raising money for the National Network of Abortion Funds. If you dig comics and also women’s reproductive rights, be sure to check it out!
