Installation of Aboveground Pool Sadly the Best Reason for Area Family to Invite Neighbors Over

The Stakower family in suburban South Carolina hosted a neighborhood get-together over the weekend in celebration over the installation of their new aboveground pool. Many neighbors showed up purely out of sympathy.

“I guess they did it because two weeks ago my husband and I held a similar party because his company finally got off the ground,” said neighbor Jean Harrow. “And of course Berrigens across the street have already planned and scheduled a backyard party to celebrate their oldest daughter graduating college. It’s both really sad and really heartwarming that the Stakowers are trying so hard.

The pool itself was of course not much to look at. Luke Stakower, the father, clearly knows nothing about pool maintenance. The water was too green and murky to see the bottom of the four-foot deep embarrassment. The only people who swam the entire time were the Stakower kids, who complained to their parents the entire time.

Luke tried to get a barbeque fire going but he couldn’t get the grill to work, causing him to lose his temper and scare everyone there.

“Come on, Luke,” he was heard telling himself, “you can do this. Everything is riding on this and you’re being a fucking moron.”

Many of the guests spent the entire time talking amongst themselves about how the Stakower’s backyard is all dirt and no grass and how weird it was that the only foliage to be seen was one dead bush that still had Christmas lights on it. Despite this, everyone lied to the Stakower’s faces in saying that they all had a lovely time and would definitely want to do this again.

Last 30 Minutes of 2 Hour Movie Just Credits List of ‘Digital Artists’

The highly anticipated Battle Squad: Age of Tomorrow hit theaters last Friday, breaking box office records and bringing the famed “Battle Squad” children’s toys to life on the big screen for the third time. Fans of the series were upset, however, upon discovering that the last 30 minutes of the 122 minute epic was just the list of the film’s “Digital Artists” during the ending credits.

The producers of Battle Squad: Age of Tomorrow have been defending their decision to put so many people in the post-production team, saying, “People want these beloved childhood heroes to be as lifelike and realistic as possible. If this means hiring 90 or more people to make sure that John Battleman’s nostrils flare up to precisely the right width when the evil Dr. Insanatee threatens to kill his wife Shirley Schwartz, then by God we’re hiring 90 or more people.”

Other fans have been defending the new film, saying that fans shouldn’t get hung up on how short the film was and should instead focus on how this edition of Battle Squad really pulled out all the stops.

“The moment when John Battlman cuts off his own hand to save his daughter’s life before learning that Dr. Insanatee is her real father and the bomb actually went off already was the coolest part of the entire series,” said one internet blogger. “We wouldn’t have been able to see all of that in such detail if it wasn’t for the digital artists.”

Additionally, a number of digital artists who worked on the movie have come out to defend their positions as well.

“When I went to art school, I never would have thought that my entire industry would be swallowed by the Hollywood machine,” said Amanda Gerscht who worked on the film. “But I’m glad it was. All of the hundreds of fellow art majors who went to my school worked on the film with me, and I’m glad we were able to work together again on an actual Hollywood film, just like we will be forever until every other aspect of filmmaking becomes useless. We are the future. Don’t fight it.”

Nauseating Couple Already Planning Halloween Costumes

Friends of Lynda Brost and Phil Linderman became disgusted over the weekend after the couple shared their plans for the “perfect Halloween costume” during a backyard get-together.

“It’s just so depressing whenever you see a couple reach this point,” said Karen Berman, one of Lynda’s longtime friends. “There’s a point in every relationship where both people just stop getting excited over those pointless romantic gestures. Unfortunately that point is past the one where everyone who isn’t in the relationship gets disgusted by them.”

“They’re definitely different, too,” said Karen’s boyfriend Donald. “They’ve been going out for two years and they’re still into that shit. Karen and I lost that after four months, just like any other ordinary couple. I don’t know why they just can’t be like everybody else.”

Lynda explained that she would dress as Katniss Everdeen from the popular Hunger Games franchise, and Phil would dress up as Hawkeye from the Avengers franchise. The gimmick is that both use bows and arrows as their choice weapon, so they wouldn’t have to vary their costumes too much. None of Lynda and Phil’s friends, however, understand why the two idolize characters from children’s movies.

“Where the hell are they planning on showing these costumes off, exactly?” asked Craig, one of Phil’s friends. “Are they going to the office dressed up like that? Are they going to crash some highschooler’s party? I mean… goddammit, I’m more just curious than anything.”

This feeling of nausea and frustration around the happy couple has reportedly lasted for several months now, with all of Lynda and Phil’s closest friends and relatives secretly hoping they’ll break up soon and be miserable like human beings are supposed to be.

Taurus (4/20 – 5/20): No one has ever left you for loving them too much. It’s the stalking that rubs people the wrong way.

10 Ways to Avoid Having Your Identity Stolen

Having one’s identity stolen has become a common issue in the digital age. Many people have their identity or credit information stolen without their knowledge. Here are a few ways you can keep this from happening to you:

 

1. If you leave your computer unattended, make sure you log out of everything and set up some sort of trip wire and poison dart booby trap.

2. Trust no one. Someone you know might actually be a hacker using one of those masks from the Mission Impossible movies.

3. Don’t open any emails from people you don’t know, unless they’re offering you money just by clicking a link. That’s easy cash.

4. Most homeless people are secretly tech-savvy scam artists who can analyze your DNA from the money you give them. Never help the homeless.

5. You can simply purchase a firearm to keep you and your family safe from hackers.

6. Kill any bug or spider you see. They might actually be tiny robots being controlled by someone gathering intelligence on you.

7. Often ordinary people will have their lives taken over by shapeshifting witches. You can ward them away with bibles, holy water and Proactiv.

8. Eat lots of carrots. They improve your vision and increase your chances of spotting a hacker from a distance.

9. Sometimes scammers will give you an amazing but fake offer over the phone, such as a unique investment opportunity or a refund for your purchase of “The Pink Panther 2” on DVD. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

10. Never give out your social security number if you happen to be among the 4% of Americans who know their social security number.

Theme Restaurant Opens for Parents who Miss their Kids

A new theme restaurant called “Yungins” has opened up in Illinois designed specifically for parents who miss their children while out on a date away from them. The interior of the restaurant is designed to mirror that of a home with toddlers, complete with paint and crayons smeared on the walls, plastic toys strewn about the establishment, and numerous refrigerators with scribbled drawings of animals and relatives attached with magnets acquired during vacations.

“It just gives you such a homey feeling,” said Beth Wellerman, a stay-at-home mom of three. “We always talk about going out and getting away from the kids but you really start to miss all this cluttered, pointless shit everywhere.”

The restaurant is also fashioned with hidden speakers that constantly play the sounds of children yelling, whining and crying in order to complete the ambiance.

“We want to give parents the feeling that they’re with their children, even when they’re not,” says restaurant owner and founder Melissa Grossman. “Most parents will say that they want a break from their kids, but our restaurant gives those parents an opportunity to face their mistakes head on.”

Yungins’ complete menu consists solely of gourmet chicken tenders, grilled cheese and pizza. Only soda is served and an ice cream sundae for desert is mandatory.

“I’m not at all surprised by how well we’re doing,” continued Melissa. “And it’s such a fun, simple little concept, too. Really the only hard part is keepin’ all the perverts away.”

Yungins also welcomes adults who aren’t parents to stop inside and take a look at the nightmare they can spend the rest of their lives narrowly avoiding.

Increase of Mandatory Cameras on Police Uniforms Forcing Officers to Resort to Verbal Abuse

With the recent, dramatic and unexplained increase in police brutality, many police forces are requiring their officers to wear cameras on their vests at all times so that cases of physical abuses of power can be recorded. Most of these cameras do not come equipped with microphones, however, resulting in a growing number of law enforcement officers to instead verbally abuse suspects with the same amount of brutality as physical force would have.

“I guess it started with him calling me names,” says Brian Watkins, a 30-year-old mechanic charged with verbally assaulting a police officer. “I was not speaking; I did not do anything to provoke him. And then out of the blue he starts calling me names. ‘Nerd,’ ‘freakazoid,’ ‘poop breath,’ things that really get to you.”

Watkins is not the only one. Other men have come forward with similar stories.

“I was just walking down the street, minding my own business,” says Dave Peterson. “Then I start hearing the racial slang. ‘Cracker,’ ‘whitey,’ things like that. I turned around and it was a police officer, but what shocked me most is that he was white. And I’m white. He was being racist against his own goddamn race. At one point he told me that it was a slow week and he had to abuse someone in someway and I was just there.”

Many city officials have begun drafting plans to have microphones attached to the vests of law enforcement officers as well, but most speculate that the truly racist and motivated members of any police force will take the time to learn American Sign Language if it means being able to abuse or talk down to someone.
