Counting down

If you, like me, are spending the day trying out anti-anxiety tips you found on the internet and obsessively reading the latest election speculation, here are a handful of free and delightful things you could be reading instead, arranged in order of most to least political:

1. Bloom County

Obviously, there are a lot of political jokes here, but there's some other stuff, too! Dandelions! Light-up bowties! Pringles jokes! Those help, right?

2. Hark! A Vagrant

Sure, some of these are pretty political, but in a way that reminds you that things could probably be worse.

3. "Texts from Cephalopods"

It's a little hard to describe this. It's a short story by a writer who goes by the name volta_arovet. (Technically, it's a fanfic inspired by a Youtube video of an octopus stealing a camera.) Here's the official plot description:
"It is a well-established fact in marine biology that the octopus is the drunk texter of the cephalopod family.
This is literally the furthest thing from political, and it makes me laugh every time I read it, which is often.
