"I dont think i’ll ever take a better photo than this in my entire life. I have the love of my life swimming under and wave and one of my best friends on a wave"
[south asian werewolves] tell yourself that shapeshifters only exist in the epics, that all you’re hearing is the wind, that the wild dogs are silent of their own volition — not because a bigger predator is about, no. some claim that there are entire villages of wolf packs, lurking out of sight. others swear that the man-beasts hide solitary and silent among the city crowds, counting the days until the moon turns and their claws emerge. their bloodlust dates back to the satya yuga, when their earliest predecessors were born of brahma’s breath and banished to earth by vishnu. they may be limited to these two forms, watered down with mortal blood over the centuries, but what more destructive combination of beasts could there possibly be than human and wolf?
The chances are we’ve gone too far

Thank you for your interest in the devil’s advocate position. Currently we are not accepting applications.
Our records indicate that you have requested to play devil’s advocate for either “just a second here” or “just a minute here” over fourteen times in the last financial quarter. While we appreciate your enthusiasm, priority must be given to those who have not yet played the position. We would like to commend you for the excellent work you have done in the past year arguing for positions you have no real interest or stake in promoting, including:
- Affirmative Action: Who’s the Real Minority Here?
- Maybe Men Score Better In Math For A Reason
- Well, They Don’t Have To Live Here
- I Think You’re Taking This Too Personally
- Would It Be So Bad If They Did Die?
- If You Could Just Try To See It Objectively, Like Me
It is our hope that future holders of the devil’s advocate position will be able to carry on your legacy: smiling as they argue for positions they only half-believe themselves with people who are attempting to discuss something sincerely and in good faith.

funnily enough, this painting (Orestes Pursued by the Furies/The Remorse of Orestes by William-Adolphe Bouguereau) shows Orestes being righteously tormented by the furies for murdering his own mother
he had done so because his mother had killed his father/her husband (Agamemnon) for sacrificing their daughter to the gods for better sailing weather
so basically, this is hilarious because it works on every level apart from the one you actually intended
