I’m having such an ostentatiously fantastic holiday that I’m convinced something is lurking just around the corner, waiting to upend everything. Is it a crocodile? A cassowary? A reminder that people here vote so far right that they’re falling off the eastern seaboard?

Despite what the headlines may scream, being killed by a giant, heavily clawed flightless bird isn't all that common https://t.co/Qni5kFTJsl #cassowary https://t.co/O1TrQy0tQD

Noah is watching @MRNarchive on Netflix (I don’t know why, truly) and @BigBird visited Make Believe. King Friday asked if he was related to the cassowary, and I’m the only one who laughed. (Big Bird politely told him he’s a golden condor).

The rooster formerly known as Satan (currently known as coq au vin) has been smelling delicious all day. Even though he needed to be dispatched as much as a certain cassowary in Florida, I don't think I can bring myself to have him for Easter supper.
