Comedy, Personal Shit

the short voiceless “th” sound in the word “thinkrel”

The mass exportation of coffee and coffee substitutes throughout the Mediterranean replaced many local dialects with “Lingua Sanka.” You could say these languages “died in an instant,” though of course many more were brewing.

Great photos from Burger Boogaloo 2015 (including some of yours truly)!
