So this is an actual legit question I need help with, even though it seems absurd.

In the 90s, SNL made this absurd insurance commercial parody for elderly people seeking protection from robot attacks and got Sam Waterston to narrate it.

If this was being made in 2020, who would they get instead.

Okay, how do I write scripts again? I've not done this since last August.

This is fine. I like how oniony it tastes (also explains why I never had it when I was younger as I thought for a long time in my life I didn't like onions (I know, I know, I was a dipshit))

I'm about to eat White Castle for the first time in my life.

I can't believe in 2020 comic book covers still sometimes look like this

There was like an 8-card set about the Xtinction Agenda arc where if you had all 8 cards it would form a single image and I remember thinking "Maybe if I get all 8, then I'll finally know what the heck Genosha is"

Actually, I had one other source of comic book info and that's the Marvel trading cards that were THE accoutrement to have at my school during 4th grade.

I remember being really disappointed when they got replaced by pogs in 5th grade, because pogs don't have any interesting lore tidbits on the back. Just skulls, eight balls and that weird S

When I was a kid, I would get to buy a comic book like once a year. There were just no comic book stores near where I lived. On the off-chance my family traveled somewhere that sold comics, I'd always buy one to go with the TV shows I liked -- usually X-men or Spiderman.

These single issues were always in the middle of long arcs where I had no clue what was going on. I remember one took place after half the X-Men had recently been killed.

I remember thinking "I bet if I could keep up with this stuff, these stories would be amazing."

Well I'm an adult now, I can, and they're not.

Just finished watching the new Cartoon Network short Trick Moon. What a year for furry animation this is turning out to be

I'm taking another sketch class, so you know what that means. Time to bring back Ron Roundsman's Discount Orb Warehouse!

I really forgot to follow my own advice about importing my follows before my instance goes offline, and not after.

Jackbox is probably selling all this data in Drawful of people drawing images based on a prompt and then other people describing that image to AI startups, right?

There's a box on the wall of my hotel room that just says "puckus" on it, and it's scaring me.

Oh never mind. My old account is up, just uploading is broken.

If you get followed by me today, this is still a backup account and @srol is still my primary account. I just finally realized that the best time to set up a backup account isn't after your Mastodon instance is offline.

This downtime is my fault for saying the name of my instance in a toot. It's like saying "MacBeth" in a theater, just incredible bad luck. When I get back to my real account I shall only call "The Honeyed Mummy" from now on.

It's weird being on an instance where the federated and local timelines mean something. When you have a small instance, you pretty much see everything on the local timeline in home already. And when everyone on your instance follows the same general group of people, well, you pretty much see everything on the federated timeline in home already
