It appears increasingly likely that ‘Puter and Volgi’s homeland (and GorT’s current residence) is going to be taking a whuppin’ from Hurricane Irene this weekend. Based on DC’s performance during Earthquake-A-Palooza 2011, ‘Puter figured his peeps in the Greater DC …Continue reading →
Today* (yesterday) marks the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. ‘Puter mostly blames the Soviets for the disaster, as the plant’s fail safes were poorly designed and the reactor had no containment unit. ‘Puter does however recognize the courage …Continue reading →
