Fun World! (Mike Andrelczyk)

Shit maybe it’s not a fun world

Oh wait I just remembered gorillas can do sign language

On the news there is footage of a hotel exploding

Charts of diseases spreading, images of cities burning, people killing each other

It’s bad everywhere and it feels like it might not be good ever again

There are meteors crashing into golf courses, fire departments are ablaze

Flying squirrels on fire!

Boxes made of steel and the bars are closed

Also just remembered the spinning gorilla gif
