Who the Fuck Are We, Anyway? - Keith Petit (Omaha)

In which your host ruminates on the vicissitudes of life, the steep social taxes imposed by (even relatively minor) mental illness, and the seemingly arbitrary temporal distribution of karmic fortune and misfortune when it comes to casual fornication. He also muses on the significance of the Morton Salt Company® logo and its equally mystifying slogan — "When it rains, it pours.™" — and how this relates to certain dry spells with regard to the endorphins and serotonin and dopamine produced by his own brain, the quality of his work life and sex life and life life, and the sudden profligacy of women who seem to be interested in him, for no reason known to him or, perhaps, even to the ladies in question. This episode is brought to you by the Morton Salt Company®, whose logo makes no fucking sense whatsoever, and whose sodium-rich story began in the (already probably very salty) streets of Chicago in 1848. When it rains, it pours.™

Ben Sasse (R-NE). 

*Also, the all-too-readily deployed term "shitty girls" refers to a specific number of bad dates, now past and forgotten about, and is not a disinvitation to those lasses who would like to sip tea of a Sunday and indeed discuss Virginia Woolf or whatever the fuck else comes to mind.
