Put the Oxygen Mask on Yourself First: Dealing with the new realities of Trump’s America

Take care or yourself, or else you wont be able to take care of others
Take care or yourself, or else you wont be able to take care of others

When I finally went to bed late last night, there was a small part of me that hoped I would wake up this morning to find that Donald Trump’s improbable victory had been nothing more than a very bad dream.

Two days, or KAZOO days? The Final Countdown Video Party hums along

Two days left! In celebration of the impending arrival of election day, here are some kazoo-based covers of The Final Countdown. There are rather a lot of them on YouTube, if you wish to explore this micro-genre further.

Three days left, and the Final Countdown Video Party is overrun by tubas and pugs

We’re only three days away from the big day. Probably a good idea to turn off the news and play videogames, or watch creepy old episodes of Space 1999 or something.

Four Days: The Final Countdown Video Party goes metal

Four days left to election day. Today’s cover version of The Final Countdown is METAL AS HELL, if by “metal” you mean “the lead guitarist apparently thinks he’s so cool he doesn’t have to hit any of the notes at the correct time.”

Heartiste: Defeat Hillary by calling her male supporters “mincing betaboys”

Mad Magazine on Mad Max: Fury Road

I admit I probably write about pickup-artist-turned-alt-right-opinion-haver Heartiste a bit more often than he merits. But his combination of furious bigotry and purple prose is irresistible.

Consider his brilliant new plan to defeat Hillary Clinton by impugning the masculinity of her male supporters.

And Then There Were Five (Days): The Final Countdown Video Fest heads to Argentina

Today, the Final Countdown Video Party takes a trip south of the border — south of the Uruguay border that is, for this amazing clip from the Argentinian show Si lo sabe, cante  (If you know it, sing it).

A truly magnificent vocal performance. And I’m pretty sure that Katy Perry later hired a couple of the dancers and put them in giant shark costumes for her Super Bowl show.

As election day draws nearer, the Trump memes get darker

So I took a look at the Donald Trump Pepe blog today, for the first time in a long time, and the memes on display there seem to be getting darker and cruder and more violent as election day draws closer.

Scott Adams: Hillary is the scary choice for president because she sometimes DRISNKS sorry DRINS I mean DRINKS

Trump: The clear-headed rational one
Trump: The clear-headed rational one

What the hell is going on in Scott Adams’ busy little brain? The Dilbert cartoonist and master persuader is now trying to persuade his readers that Hillary Clinton, not the volatile, easily angered Donald Trump, is the truly dangerous choice for president.

Because she’s been known to drink sometimes. And Trump supposedly doesn’t drink. At least not liquor. Maybe blood. People are saying he drinks blood.

#DraftOurDaughters: The Alt-Right’s new master (race) plan to defeat Hillary

Alt-Righters: Not fooling anyone
Alt-Righters: Not fooling anyone

So the Alt-Right and its fellow travelers have a brilliant new strategy to defeat Hillary Clinton — a hashtag (and assorted hashtag-related memes) intended to trick voters, especially women, into thinking that Hillary intends to draft women for an inevitable war with Russia.
