A tumblr for everyone's favorite Senior British Correspondent.

“We are somehow collectively able to laugh at references to the fact that four percent of prisoners reported being sexually victimized in the past year. One in twenty-five! Now, that might not sound like a lot, but think of it like this: if every time you bought two dozen donuts, one of them had been raped, you’d be pretty upset. And those are pastries. Prisoners are people.”

—John Oliver, 7/20/14 (via allergictoidioms)

“Government is not an à la carte system where you can pick and choose based on your beliefs. Taxation is more of an all-you-can-eat salad bar. You don’t get to show up and say, ‘Look, I know it costs $10.99, but I’m only paying $7.50 because I have a moral objection to beets.

Everyone has their own version of beets. If you really want to be treated like a person, corporations, then guess what? Paying for things you don’t like is what it feels like to be one.”
