I read your post, Allan. I laughed. I added enough claps to reach a total of 800. I shrugged because I do not recommend the clap, but negative clapping for the medium is not available. I considered a more elaborate response, because I never clap without responding.

‘Over here in the cute little Kingdom of the pannenkoek I was wide awake in the wee hours of the morning. I thought about the coming Taco War (2017–20..) between the DSA and Mexico. Tacos were meant to become obsolete as a result of the umptiest Executive Tweet-order (signed after the Taco-addicted Tweeter tweeted ‘what not good is for Me, is not good for the other suckers. Tacos banned. Good’). The Mexican drug mafia, brought into existence by the CIA as part of the War on Drugs, (this is not fake history) saw its chances. It started secret and illegal taco bakeries all over Mexico, had the tacos shipped by the existing drug transport lines into the DSA, followed up by an elaborate tunnel-and-drone system after the wall began to materialize. A few years later it became clear how the wall had been funded: the Trump administration secretly paid the tacos and the mafia funded the wall (and the tunnel-and-drone-system) partly out of the new budget. The remaining money was of course used for killing and plunder. Everybody happy. The wall was built, tacos were still secretly available, Taco Tiger finally had one of his populist policies implemented, he could brag that the Mexicans paid for the wall…..’

But I decided not to respond in that way. It is too unlikely, isn’t it? So there you are, a bunch of claps for the post, my apology.
