Local Man Fails to Read Fine Print, Sold to Highest Bidder


Madison, WI—Only a few months ago Jay Fairfield, 29, had just begun to get his life together. He’d finally found a steady job with good health insurance, he’d figured out a financial plan to pay off his monumental student loans, and he’d recently learned about the birth of his nephew. “I was feeling like life was about to get rolling.” Fairfield bought a $500 plane ticket through American Airlines to see his newborn nephew in Rhode Island. Shortly after purchasing his ticket, Fairfield’s nephew fell ill, and he had to reschedule the trip for later in the year. That’s when it all began...See More


Resident Millennial Dispatches

Boomers asked for it, and boomers get what they want. So they got a younger voice to pipe up about the concerns of the younger generation--but only to pipe up, not advocate for actual change, because that won't get the "right people" elected, of course, to get the "wrong people" out of Wall St., corporate lobbies, etc. Nonetheless, here are articles, investigations, and memes that hopefully serve as a safari of sorts through the Serengeti of Young Person Thought. I'm Millennial in name, but Gen Z in practice (Boomers can't be expected to learn ANOTHER phrase from this bottomless terminology spewing from the Radical Left these days, right?)...ANYWAY, welcome to my...

Area Dropout Psyched for the Next Big Breakdown

Somerville, MA—Returning from yet another failed interview, local dropout Tom Dunne now feels prepared to take on his next nervous breakdown. “You know, I’ve been working toward this for a long time, and I’ve never felt better about my prospects of sobbing in public at a moment’s notice.”

When he dropped out after his sophomore year at an elite liberal arts school in Pennsylvania, Dunne enthusiastically told his peers about his plans to achieve spiritual enlightenment. Now, having been handed a formal eviction notice from his parents, he’s not so sure. “I really thought I’d have some kind of answer at this point, you know?
