Good Riddance To Bad Rubbish, 2022 Edition!

It's that time again, when we all say a welcome "Good Riddance" to the current corn-studded turd of a year.

Here's just a sampling of the treats 2022 had in store for us:

• Vladamir Putin ordered his Russian troops to invade Ukraine. Fortunately the Ukrainians have put up quite the resistance, but... they shouldn't have had to.

• Covid cases continued to kill thousands across the country, while an indifferent public simply shrugged.

• Our shithole of a planet tried its best to wipe us out with hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, quakes, heat waves, blizzards and more. This is not a nice planet.

• Monkey Pox cases began soaring.

• There were over 600 mass shootings, causing our leaders to wring their hands and offer thoughts and prayers, but no definitive action.

• Putin threatens nuclear war when his invasion doesn't go the way he wanted (bring it on, I say).

• The Supreme Court decided they were in charge of the country, and overturned Roe vs. Wade.

• Gas prices soared to record highs.

• Inflation rose across the country, hitting food prices in particular.

• Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated. 

• Queen Elizabeth II died, allowing Charles to become king.

• England went through THREE prime ministers in just two months.

• It was revealed that trump stole thousands of top secret documents from the White House and flung them into a closet in Mar-A-Lago. Much was made of this highly illegal and possibly treasonous action, but as usual, he faced zero consequences.

• trump announced he was running for president again, proving we really are living in the darkest timeline. That f*cking orange asshole's like a bad rash that just won't go away.

• Elon Musk did his best to become a second-rate Bond villain, much to the world's annoyance and boredom.

• Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, and we had to hear about it every day for the next three months.

• Marvel Studios did their level best to destroy the MCU that they spent ten years creating.

• The world population topped an astonishing 8 BILLION people, which is just way too goddamned many.

Whew! And that's all just off the top of my head! I'm sure there were even more atrocities I've thankfully pushed from my mind.

It's an exercise in futility, but I'm gonna say it again— let's hope 2023 is a better year for us all.
