Amanda seems to have a handle on the desserts and ridiculousness side of things, so I’m going to focus on injecting a little more atrocity into this atrocity humor blog.
As some of you know, I’m mid-way through writing a dissertation on criminal accountability for acts of mass atrocity. That means I spend a good whack of my time cataloguing and typologizing the horrors of the last half-century. (And you thought political scientists never have any fun.)
The project has yielded all sorts of fascinating trivia, which I’ve decided to share with / inflict on you. So, at the start of every other week in 2014, brace yourselves for Mass Atrocity Monday, because that’s happening.
