I was sitting in Trumplandia thinking if we tear up the climate deal in a fit of denial, then what other possibilities are there? So I smoked a doob and saw it, an undiscovered intelligent lizard species that survived the big asteroid hit and have been hiding underground in Antarctica for millions of years. The media went wild, people rebelled against their religious leaders and saw the lizards as devils, civil war soon followed. After our nuclear annihilation we finally rested in peace knowing we did it for the good of humanity, and yet they survived us, only to watch earth die. Yea Humanity! We’re # 2.
