New Year: Lit Community Challenge
Thank you to everyone who participated in this challenge! We had a total of seven participants, and it was great to see the effort put into boosting our community. Here's the prizes in descending order:
MagicalJoey - 640 pts
heartdialect - 640 pts
saturdaystorytellers - 480 pts
IamNoHere - 130 pts
SilverInkblot - 95 pts
SlytherclawPadawan - 80 pts
WishingUnderThatStar - 55 pts
MagicalJoey and heartdialect completed every task; well done! :clap: They both receive the special combo prize of 3-month core and a $25 Amazon gift card.
AND... because saturdaystorytellers completed every task except greeting a new lit deviant, since she ran out of time to find one despite her best efforts, we've decided to award her the third combo prize as a show of good faith. That level of community spirit

The US was down on creating coal mining jobs
People didn't want to be coal miners
It is the most dangerous job in America
It one of the lowest paying jobs
You can easily get black lung
But Trump created 77,000 of these jobs
So that he could gain publicity
These are jobs
That no sane people want
Trump created them anyway
Want a job?

Trump Is Never Wrong
Another swipe at Trump
When I first started working at the FDA. There was a certain girl that I truly loved. I loved her so deeply but it was not meant to be. When she left I was destroyed. I carried a torch for her for 10 years.  People thought that I would never get over. Then, on a butterfly collecting trip in Arizona, I heard a most beautiful song by Cheap Trick called "The Flame". It echoed the love and pain that I felt. I finally got over her, all because of the song.  I cannot express the gratitude that I have for you Cheap Trick.

Thank You  
I must apologize for my ex-friend . He has hacked into my computer and has caused me a lot of trouble. He thinks that using pictures from anywhere is art theft. Even if the artist gives you permission to use them. He also thinks that using Microsoft Paint or even drawing the picture yourself is art theft because you got the idea from somewhere else. Only he can create art because he is holy. We think he has lost it. He still causes me a lot of trouble.

Another communist country. I am an art thief because I used Microsoft paint. I would still be an art thief if I drew it myself because I got the Idea from someone else. All this from an ex-friend who is crazy loco.
