@directhex @directhex I find it a fascinating exercise. The unifying ethnicity that brought most of my ancestors to America was "Catholic", which is weird to unpack on several levels. Most of the last names on my family tree are Ellis Island respellings of German. My mother's maiden name they thought was Scottish for decades, but that was an American lie to avoid Irish association and the name is Scotch Irish from the Catholic Irish side of the fence.

Panic? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within the disco?

Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
