Thank you again Steven (this is getting boring, I know, but I am really grateful) , for another moment of happiness in a dark epoch. Even for us, an ocean away, the somber shadows of a new Sauron are visible. The sickening odor of his army of Orks suffocates us. Orks with buttplugs. Hahahaha!

It is hard to understand where all those vile monsters have been hiding in better times, but every cost has its benefit*: superb satire flourishes like never before.

*this is a clumsy translation of a famous statement of the footballer-philosopher Johan Cruyff, in Dutch ‘elk nadeel hep z’n voordeel’ . Nadeel=disadvantage, handicap, drawback, demerit. Voordeel=advantage, benefit.

So may be a better translation is ‘every disadvantage has its advantage’.

And now a good cup of covfefe.
