Now I’m hungry and sad.


And the biggest problem with that is that there isn’t a good portmanteau like with hungry+angry. Extra sadness.


Very sweet.


Oh, Gene…
You were my fav wilder,
So winky, not vain,
O gene,
So funny yet soft and squishy,
Married well,
Stayed to tell the funny side of life…

I love you, man, and I’ll never forget you.
Thank you.


It’s made out of candy; how apt.



I’m not partial to desserts* but this is a fitting tribute to someone who made the world sweeter.

*Yes, I am, really, but…


It’ll last longer if you use decorated Toblerone 10M long. The sadness. Some of the sadness.


Sangry doesn’t work?


Not as well. Too similar to sangria, which is neither sad nor angry. But it works well enough to lift the extra sadness. Thank you.
