  1. Cutting off the flow of information, the vital circulatory function of the particular populace, was always a primary initiative. Unlike a noose, though, this particular method of increasing restriction was, by design, intended to sever at its terminus. Unlike a noose, whose success as a utility is dependent upon gravity exerting enough force on an object to constrict its respiratory function, the success of this plan will be marked by the distinct separation and labeling of the target demographic, then its subsequent vilification, followed closely by admonishment, ridicule, reprimand, and then punitive measures, usually exile or incarceration, though extra-judicial “solutions” are also known to occur with great reported frequency.

She speaks audibly. The silent woman begins speaking again, silent.


  3. It must’ve been the chocolate brownies. Tighter and tighter and tighter. Then with a grunt and a groan finally after 2 gut- sucking minutes, she managed to get her heinie into a pair of Not My Daughter’s Jeans.
