Face it, this election is punishing to the spirit. No matter who you’re for, it’s been a brutal ride marked by animosity and vitriol. Not sure about that? Try explaining this election — and the swings and turns it’s taken in the news — to some young kids. Then watch, if you’re honest with them, as the innocence bleeds from their bodies like its being drawn via syringe.
But people are resilient. And they’re also good at making lemonade from lemons. We’ll find some fun, damn it, even amidst the electoral agony. First came the ability to blow around Donald Trump’s hair with a trumpet — at TrumpDonald.org. 137 million people have done that so far. Now there’s Hillarycal — a stretch of a play on the word hysterical, seems — where you can make the Democratic candidate for president laugh. It’s courtesy of a Dutch creative shop — they’re in a good mood because they don’t have to see any American political TV ads. Hillary’s chuckle has some catching up to do to match Donald’s blowing bouffant — just 126,000 people have made Clinton laugh so far. She’ll need 270 electoral votes to have the last laugh.
