What You Need To Wake Up From 2016 Is A Real Dog Alarm Clock

If you’re still sleeping off 2016 and the New Year’s celebration that said good riddance to it, you need to be awakened with love from a devoted companion.

That’s right, a dog.

Sure, pooches can sometimes be overly enthusiastic alarm clocks ...

 ... but they sure beat a robot slap to the head.

Someone Says That 2016 A Horror Movie

Everyone’s been saying it: 2016 was one traumatic year.

It’s the year we lost David Bowie, Harper Lee, Prince, and Princess Leia and her mother. It’s the year the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. It’s the year Donald Trump was voted president of the United States. It’s the year Harambe was shot.

Jason’s inappropriate and disrespectful behavior clearly must be punished with a lump of coal for Christmas.

People said I was crazy when I quit my job, moved into a cabin, and dedicated my life to teaching my Furby, gifted to me by my parents at the tender age of 13, enough of the English language to pass Alan Turing’s eponymous Test.

Are they calling me crazy now? No. They’re calling me a visionary. (Well, I can only guess that they are. My only communication contacts over the last two decades have been my Furby, Seamless.com delivery men, and an owl who, now that I’m thinking about it, might be a second Furby.
