All articles, photos, comics, features, symbols and spaces between letters are entirely fictional and intended for humorous purposes. Any references to actual persons, living or dead, as well as actual entities and institutions are not grounded in fact; all narratives here written have been invented in the minds of people who believe that they are smarter than and superior to the aforementioned persons, entities and institutions. No live animals were harmed during the production of this publication.
