Now I’m hungry and sad.


#3

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.

#RIP.


#7

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.


#9

Sangry doesn’t work?


#10

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.
