Today’s my birthday and to celebrate this annual occasion I thought having my 100th post…posted would be a nifty thing. However, my idea reservoirs are dry at and the government relief funding I applied for is “being processed” (i.e. never coming) so I figured I’d write whatever and hope it works. While I think of something to talk about enjoy this video I found 12 years ago. Also, spoiler in the caption.
It was at this point I realized Ididn’t really have anything so I’ll see you in Post 100 Part II: The actual 100th Post
Remember the golden rule of driving in snow: don’t
Today is the one year anniversary of Satired of Anime! Well, sort of. Today is the one year anniversary of me posting stuff. The actual one year anniversary was like three weeks ago, but I didn’t feel like celebrating “Conglaturations on clicking Create Account” Day. Here’s what you can expect in the coming year:
More content (hopefully)
Better Content (possibly)
Different Types of Content (Don’t know what yet)
Me knowing what I’m doing (not a chance)

Sacramento, CA- “It’s okay Jim; you’ve trained for this”. This was the lie that echoed through James Strong’s head after he learned his sister-in law would be coming to his family’s Christmas Eve party this year. “Normally I’d be freaking out like you wouldn’t believe” said Strong; however, I made sure to adjust my meditation just in case this happened”. When asked what’s so bad about having his wife’s sister at their house for the party he said: “you have no idea”. “I don’t know what I did but, she’s always made it clear that she hates me with the passion of 1,000 white-hot George Foreman grills”. “And the worst part is that her and my wife are best friends”, “so if I do something to piss her off which, by my calculations, is anything, my wife’ll get mad too. “It’s okay though”, “It’s only one night and I know I can handle that”. However, in what can only be described as classic comedic timing, Strong’s wife briefly interrupted our interview to tell him that her sister would be staying with them through New Year’s. In that moment I saw his eyes, full of hope, go blank and then shift to a gaze filled with pure terror. May the gods have mercy on his soul.
Merry Christmas Everyone! Unless you don’t celebrate Christmas in which case…Happy Festivus!
Sacramento, CA- “I hope I can pull this off”. These were the words of area man James Strong on his strict meditation schedule in preparation for Thanksgiving. “I’ve been practicing since last year so I hope I’m ready”. “I mean, I love my wife more than anything but her parents drive me crazy”. Thanksgiving, or as it’s better known, “the greatest test of your patience with your extended family ever”; is a challenge to see how much food and alcohol you can shove into your system so you can avoid any awkward conversations. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May you’re food be fantastic and your booze plentiful. Unless you’re not American in which case, Happy Thursday! Hmmm, that doesn’t sound as cool…
As I am sure many of you have heard the anime community’s favorite penguin, Grape-kun, has passed away at the age of 20. For those who are not aware of Grape-kun he was a penguin at Tobu Zoo in Saitama Prefecture who rose to prominence after pictures of him staring at a cutout of Hululu from Kemono friends surfaced online. The situation which was initially hilarious became heart-warming when more pictures surfaced of Grape-kun showing genuine love and affection towards his waifu. Sadly no one, neither man nor penguin can best Father Time and Grape-kun has left this world leaving behind an example that genuine love does exist in the most unlikely of ways. Rumor has it the final words he heard were that of his beloved telling him “you found me”.
