We have a rather jumbo-sized Friday News Bites this week, but am I glad I didn’t write this post before news about the Great Llama Chase of 2015 broke. Let’s get started.
Maybe people are too busy preparing for the holidays to devote as much time as usual to being misogynistic pricks, because the news wasn’t nearly as bad this week as it usually is. It’s a Festivus miracle! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
