Non-Pathetic Fallacy

by Nora Jay

“Gun owners are taking photos of themselves pointing weapons at their genitals with the safety off”
The Guardian

Here’s what you need to understand:
A guy ungunned’s a guy unmanned;
So when I point at this with that
It shows you I’m no scaredy-cat.
I’ve got them both between my legs
As mighty as two tinder-kegs;
Safety’s for sissies! that’s our cry:
Trust Trump and keep your powder dry.
