Good God, Trump is such a graceless, pathetic clod. Four years of this? Really? https://t.co/omtP8FVxHn
Hey Trump -- you'll be nostalgic for the #WomensMarch come tomorrow. That's when state-level action starts, every single day. 'Night!
Not a single acting gig. I'm forced to act with groups of people in things, usually. It's beyond tragic. https://t.co/QVu0QuaTXx
Not only do you look like me, you're as big a pussy as I am. Except I'm not scared by...people sitting in a lobby? https://t.co/dsZD8sjC45
I am profoundly sorry and embarrassed. Please accept my apology. https://t.co/nz6bfI4cZ0

31 HORROR STORIES -- "The Boarded Window" (1906)

@ 1:00 PM

Ambrose Bierce. His "An Inhabitant of Carcosa" got H.P. Lovecraft's blood a-boiling. Being the Ramones to the whole Cthulhu Mythos alone gets him on this list. But, again, he's got so many to choose from.

Fuck it, I'm choosing this. And all because of the last two sentences. It's one thing to have Bierce's gift for casually describing horror head-on (a favorite: "A man though naked may be dressed in rags", describing a hideously mutilated corpse). Here, he tells a folksy, outdoors-y tale of the frontier. Nothing seems all too horrible -- until those last...two...sentences.
