The Only Thing We Have to Meme are Memes ThemselvesTop Story - August 2023
I've been away for a while. In the past, I have authored a lot of short stories here, especially horror and sci-fi. I also write poetry. I have an FYI series entitled Top 10 Prophets, 👁👁 Prognosticators, & Visionaries. And last year, I compiled a slew of various memes, developing a kind of comedy series, long before Vocal created this glorious Humor Community.
Misfits and Oddities
In a suburb on the outskirts of downtown Indianapolis, Indiana, there was a tailor shop that didn't open until 1:30 pm and then closed quite late. The owner of the shop was a gaunt old white man named William L. Bolton. Using the inheritance he acquired from his wealthy grandmother, he started his legitimate business (and the illegal ‘blind tiger’ behind it) at the dawn of nationwide Prohibition, barely a year after the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution was ratified. Besides the unusual name of the establishment, potential customers were given yet another subtle clue that the suit maker inside was a weirdo. One of two signs in the front window read, “PHILOSOPHERS & FREETHINKERS WELCOME!”
The Journey of a Thousand Smiles Begins with One Meme
Salutations, friends! It's me again, __Lightning Bolt⚡ with another droll edition of Meme-ing Madness! I originally opened with some seriousness here at the top, but upon reflection, I thought it might kill the vibe, so I moved it to the bottom. I haven't published anything for quite some time— I've been going through rough times lately. Find out why after the silliness, if you're so inclined. For now, all you need to know is that I've finally made significant strides at pulling my head out of my ass. I think I've gotten my sense of humor back... but I'll let you be the judge of that.

🔥 A Day Without Diablo Sauce is like Hell Without Satanshine 🔥
WARNING: The Story You Are About to Read is True. The names weren't changed to protect the innocent. 🤷♂️ Sue me. So a while back (technically it was four years ago), I went to Taco Bell, as usual, and ordered my Nacho Fries Supreme, as usual. And, naturally, I wanted my Diablo sauce.
The Day That Forever Changed My Life
On August 23, 1976, I awoke to a normal day. I was fifteen years old, living with my family on a farm in white bread northern Indiana. We (school kids) were still in our summer vacation. Back then, it was right after Labor Day when we went back to school (because our rural high school had no air conditioning).
