…and both of them work at Mars Wrigley Confectionery. As in the company that makes Snickers, M&M’s, and Dove (among many, many, many other chocolate and candy brands).

Before they moved in, one of our other neighbors would regularly put a bowl of candy out in the lobby for fellow neighbors to enjoy. These candies were bite-sized, like a Hershey’s Kiss or a hard-candy peppermint.

However, since the new couple moved in, this is what our lobby looks like:

MY MANBOOBS AREN'T HAPPY!

I love our new neighbors… and they will be the death of me,

Did somebody say wish?

Don’t let Fox News fool you, even atheists are still saying it!

"Bigly" by Justin Shady.

I write at least one spec feature script for myself every year. In 2016, I wrote Saving Charlie Chaplin, which obviously got some love and attention.

Unfortunately, I finished 2017’s script far too late in the year for it to get any real traction or make any lists. But that doesn’t mean I’m not proud of it.

I released my ninth spec on November 8th, 2017, one year to the day that Donald Trump shockingly (and appallingly) won the presidency. That date was consciously chosen because the script, titled Bigly, is a humorous account of Trump’s inauguration. Or at least how I had hoped his inauguration had turned out.

For the holidays, I thought it might be fun to share my script. Consider it a present from me to you. Of course, feel free to share it with friends and family. Especially friends and family who voted for Trump. It will be a fun conversation starter around the dinner table this coming weekend.

Now on to number ten… and eleven,
