Speaking of which: I see some people still actually have AIDS! At least they do if there’s government grant money to be had. All the straight women in North America with AIDS could comfortably hold a Tupperwear party in my livingroom (trading tips on the best containers for all their pills…)

Next time your kid swallows poison, crack open this quote and read it aloud to induce vomiting:
“Our project will support these women in building positive social networks, enhancing existing skills and developing new ones, and in establishing constructive lifestyles — and we’ll do it, in part, by empowering the women through outreach, training and nurturing them in sharing their stories.”
