the joys of television

anonymous asked:

how would bendy react if he met the nicest characters in tv shows? (fluttershy, rose quartz, nurse joy, etc.)

He would respect them and help them with whatever they ask. He doesn’t even have to think twice about it.

when the leaves turn gray and only a timid piece
of an asparagus imitates aesthetic space

when the smudged paint imprints itself on clown faces
and nuclear bombs seem colorful as rainbows

when flowers seem to be gravestones of past joys
and when every seed is grown in television

when we imbibe video game streams chanting
“cut out the jams” like it was the last religion

when art is made by the AI instead of our interest
and we live with the dried-up Bottichellis

when we are nubile in 3D ejaculating not with body
but allowing the fantasy the honor of having it

when vhs tapes roll about the sarcophagus of T-rex
and music dusts the unused syringe of a junkie

when the tyranny of the identity dreams a president
and he stumbles without hair in wasteland earth

that is the great age of man when I can sit in my room
all alone writing about it without any greater care

“In a career spanning three decades, Ellen DeGeneres has lifted our spirits and brought joy to our lives as a stand-up comic, actor and television star. In every role, she reminds us to be kind to one another and to treat people as each of us wants to be treated. At a pivotal moment, her courage and candor helped change the hearts and minds of millions of Americans, accelerating our nation’s constant drive toward equality and acceptance for all.

Again and again, Ellen DeGeneres has shown us that a single individual can make the world a more fun, more open, more loving place so long as we ‘just keep swimming.’”
