The buffalo magnetic poetry set you didn’t know you needed

You’re right, I didn’t know I needed this. Probably because I don’t need it.

Now were it a badger magnetic poetry set…

As long as you use the correct number of tiles your poem is guaranteed to be grammatically correct every time.

Badgers?
Do be careful.

I’ve created an avant-garde sanitation system that confronts people with their waste

There actually exists an art installation that confronts people with their waste, though not a sanitation system, but rather a digestive system:

When asked about his inspiration, Delvoye stated that everything in modern life is pointless. The most useless object he could create was a machine that serves no purpose at all, besides the reduction of food to waste.

I usually go with excusable or forgivable.
Especially when commenting on pop music.

That emoji submission was going well until this line:

Badgers have existed since the 16th century

(referencing the earliest known recorded instance of the word “badger” in the English language). FFS.

Missed that bit. Oh dear.


#14

I gotta admit, that one tile in ALL CAPS really completes it.
