Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.

i want a novel focused around a character with braces during the apocalypse and the entire plot of the story revolves around their search for an orthodontist who is still alive and they sort of accidentally save the world in the process

Titled: Brace for It.

Florida town: Get your pants off the ground or face 6 months in jail
A city in Florida doesn’t want people showing off their ‘whale tails,’ ‘plumber’s cracks’ or boxers on public property so much that they banned the saggy-pants fashion statement within city limits.
“Lookin’ like a fool, walkin’ downtown with ya pants on the ground,” ‘General’ Larry Platt famously sang in his ‘American Idol’ audition. “Giddy up! Get ya pants off the ground!”
Officials in Ocala, Fla. agree with Platt’s sentiment so much that city council unanimously passed an ordinance that prohibits anyone on city property from wearing pants two inches or more below a person’s natural waist.

It doesn’t matter how Black men and boys dress, as white people always find a way to pathologize and criminalize them. And remember that Dr. MLK Jr.—a “respectable” Black Christian man— was assassinated while wearing a suit. Fuck “respectability”-politics. 

Lets just ignore the fact that school shootings have sky rocketed. The biggest problem facing America is black men sagging. In Florida no less. Are y’all motherfuckers serious?! You cannot be. 
Weed is becoming legal. They need new ways to throw those scary black men and scary 8 year old black boys in prison.

Not An Onion Article of the Day: Kid Rock Sued In Insane Clown Posse Case Over ICP’s Glass Dildo (And Yes, You Just Read All That Correctly)
Earlier this week, Kid Rock peered at his glass dildo and nodded solemnly, his eyes welling. He knew this day would one day come, but he was blindsided nonetheless. If the young blonde in his bed saw the tear roll down his cheek, she wouldn’t have known why. Kid was keeping this secret deep inside: he had been notified via a subpoena that he must present the crystal clear sex toy, gifted to him by an employee of Insane Clown Posse, as evidence in a sexual harassment trial.
That trial regards the case of Andrea Pellegrini, a one-time publicist for America’s foremost rapping adult clowns. According to Pellegrini, the glass dildo is one example of the sustained harassment she endured as an employee of ICP’s Psychopathic Records. In her lawsuit, she alleges that she was gifted the dildo by a human named “Dirty Dan” Diamond when Diamond noticed that she had changed her relationship status on Facebook.
Pellegrini turned down the glass dildo handed to her by someone named “Dirty Dan” Diamond, as would any person. Any person, that is, except Kid Rock, who was presented with the opportunity to procure a glass dildo from someone named “Dirty Dan” Diamond and thought “Well, I can’t pass this up.”
Diamond admitted under oath that he verbally harassed Pellegrini at work, which is extremely surprising given that his nickname is “Dirty Dan.” This might be the low point in Diamond’s life, but he will always have a friend in Kid Rock.
