Post 375: Not That Kind of Hunger

Hunger is a thing most of us dislike. If we hunger for food and eat too much, it’s bad. Then someone brings in dessert. Turn away, you don’t want to see this.

You’re in the grocery store buying luxury items like milk and toilet paper, when someone asks you to donate $5 to end Hunger in Africa. You can do the math. That’s not a whole lot of rice and plantains going to those poor children.

In Sparkyville, there’s a group that wants to help you feel bad about how much you have and how hungry other people are. They’ll even give you something for your donation.

What are those soldiers doing? Why are they only half clothed? No, never mind. Ralph submitted this without comment, which is probably the best way to go. Wash your hands after reading this post. Thanks, Ralph! Perfect start to a Memorial Day.
