I can’t believe that you all are falling down on the job. If you were listening to NPR Morning Edition this morning you would’ve heard that today is Joyce Carol Oates’s 78th birthday. I’ll be honest, I am not entirely sure why Clashtalk is obsessed with her. Maybe I got here too late to be in on the joke and I’ll always be playing at being a cool kid with y’all. But anyway.

A birthday treat (spoiler warning for those of you who are whiny babies about spoilers):

That’s deep shit.
