I’ve been watching a lot of Animal Cops: Houston lately, and what I’ve learned is that literally anything is a great reason to shoot a horse in the head. Oh, my horse fell down. It will never recover. Shoot it in the head. Oh, my horse is really hungry and it has a rash. Shoot it in the head. Oh, my horse got mud on it. Shoot it in the head. Great idea, humans-choose that fancy ladyboy animal made of spun sugar and cobwebs to do our strenuous physical labor. Horses. Jesus Christ. What a bullsh*t animal.

Well, I understand that they are words…
— Ma Ning, when asked if she understood an indeterminably vague client brief.

We all have many decisions to make during our life and every decision we make is with good reason. Some may be regrettable; that’s life. We all learn from the past but we don’t live with the past.
— Andrew Cheng

[Bali] was great…until I got bitten by a monkey. That wasn’t great.

You look like Michael Jackson. But bald.
— Harmony Charles, to Adam Charles (Can you tell I’m all but living with the Charles’?)

I’ve become way less productive. You’re fucking up my life.

Adam Charles
