As per tradition, most writers and bloggers will be making their “Top 10” posts to celebrate the end of 2018 and ring in the coming year on a positive note. But I ask: where’s the fun in that?
Instead, I bring you six awful Prejudice & Politics stories I wrote this year. (A big thanks to Nick over at babbitman for helping me realize 6 is a much better number than 10.)
America dies and goes to hell. Is anyone surprised?
Aside from being a godless parody of an actual novel, this makes the list because it’s about bad counties going to a bad place because they’re so bad. The real travesty is that I think most countries belong in hell, but I only got to write about five–so, I picked my favorites.
A response to Trump’s public affection for China’s Xi Jinping, this story is just one big mess of homoerotic dick jokes. Enough said, but keep in mind the punchline is not “haha it’s gay,” but rather, “kind of weird how the ‘leader of the free world’ constantly spouts Twitter praise for authoritarians.”
Who said religious gals don’t know how to get wild? This one makes the cut because it’s disgusting how Russia, Austria, and Prussia think they can get away with being so strong. I advise you to read this while listening to Shania Twain’s “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” playing softly in the background. For better results, play loudly.
This story begins by filling your brain with the mental image of North Korea naked. Depending on where you sit on the political spectrum, I can either say “sorry” or “you’re welcome.”
Okay, this is a recycle of a recycle of some cards I made in 2017 but, damn! I’m proud of my stupid political sex jokes!
You know why this is here? Because Korea is one of my favorite characters to write and she’s an absolute goddess and it’s a travesty that her coming-of-age, action fantasy debut series didn’t get enough attention. Don’t read this for me, read this for her.
