"Crapalachia: A Biography of a Place" is the second Scott McClanahan book that I have read. It's good, you should read it.

Here's an excerpt:

"And so they opened up the bird box and nothing happened. We waited. And then this sleepy-looking dove just crawled out, except it didn't even look like a dove really but just a fat pigeon that somebody had painted white.
          It had a look on its face like, What the fuck? Seriously, people. What the fuck? It's way too cold to be doing this today. So the Wallace and Wallace guy tried to shoo it but it wouldn't shoo.
         So the preacher repeated: "We'll now release the dove."
         The Wallace and Wallace guy shooed it again. Finally the dove shot high up into the air and out and over our heads, but instead of flying away it just landed on top of this chain-linked fence. And so the Wallace and Wallace guy tried shooing it again and everyone giggled and gathered around in a circle throwing up their arms and shouting "shoo-shoo" at the bird high above. I shouted, "Shoo." We were all shooing.
         But it wouldn't shoo.
         And so it was."

If you have ever played a pokemon game, you need to watch Pokemon Origins. It is how pokemon battling would be irl, they are really fighting each other. It's too real, so there are only four episodes.

If you ever get into a fight, you may want to consider issuing a liver shot to insta-drop them.

This is where the liver is located in the body.

 This is an almost liver shot, real close.

 And this is Ricky Hatton making it happen.

Natural Selection.

You probably can't tell by looking at this, but the thought of beached whales makes me feel feelings.
