"You maniacs! "

"Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
George Taylor, The Planet of the Apes
And here we are on the morning after the American presidential election, looking at the news that Donald Trump is the next president of the United States. In some strange way, I'm excited - between this and the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series, it's obvious that at some point in the recent past we've gone through the looking glass, or maybe down the rabbit hole - something like that, some kind of departure from the linear, probability-based, cause-and-effect reality that we used to inhabit.

As a result, I now fully expect Bigfoot and his wife to come strolling out of the forest, space aliens to land on the White House lawn and ask if they can talk to the new guy, cold fusion to become a proven source of cheap safe energy, and the Loch Ness Monster to rise to the surface of her cold, watery home and take a deep, deep breath.

After this, anything's possible.

  1. Did you have 2 options depending on who won?

  2. Well, yes and no. No, I didn't prepare anything in advance, nor would I have done a Hillary Clinton version if she had won, but I do have two versions - I did the current posted version and one that looks more like a verdigris-covered statue. I asked Karli and she said that this one was easier to interpret as being Trump.
