All I asked for was sliced cheese.  –  Ricky Berry

Unfortunately, the US media (including social media) are still obsessed with Donald Trump, so it was pretty slim pickings for links this week; let it never be said I don’t go the extra mile for my readers, though.  The video was provided by Jacob Sullum, and the links above it by Tim Cushing (“surprise” and “understand”), Scott Greenfield (“robot”, “politicians” and “surgery”), Cathy Reisenwitz (“identity”), and  Tushy Galore (“retrained”).

It’s sending a message that there is no accountability for what you have done.  –  cop spokesman Martin Halloran, on forgiveness

I’m not a fan of either death metal or avante-garde music, but there’s something strangely intriguing about this cover of John Cage’s “4’33″” by the band Dead Territory, provided by Jesse Walker.  The links above it are from Tim Cushing  (“protect”, “fantasy” and “justice”), Ed Krayewski (“whatsoever”), Amy Alkon  (“isolation”), Mike Siegel (“step”), and Mistress Matisse (“goats”).

I don’t have time to play this constitutional bullshit.  –  unnamed DC cop

What the fuck, 2016?  How many great songwriters are you going to take?  David Bowie, Prince, Merle Haggard and now Leonard Cohen?  No, don’t fucking answer that; I’m hoping you’ll get distracted for the next 7 weeks and forget to take any more.  Anyhow, the links above the video were contributed by Scott Greenfield  (“protect”, “hindrance” and “agency”), Jesse Walker (“democracy”), Laura Lee  (“necessity”), and Tushy Galore (“together”).

The specter of death creates supreme delights, salivary expectations, and this is why the greatest of gastronomical refinements consists in eating ‘cooked and living beings’.  –  Salvador Dalí

This video was being passed around on Twitter early last month, but I saved it for the day before the election because it seemed appropriate, and I figured those of y’all stressing out about it tomorrow can come back and look at this and smile.  The links above it were contributed by Jesse Walker (“cookbook”), Skye  (“official”), Mike Siegel (“dangerous”), Walter Olson (“Florida”), and Franklin Harris (“stupid”).

Obviously, she didn’t come out of it well.  –  Danielle Bargala

Another Halloween cartoon?  Yep.  Pleasant dreams.  The links above it are from  Tim Cushing (“fascism”, “serves” and “hope”), Jesse Walker (“machine”), Amy Alkon (“shoes”), and Women With A Vision (“cops”).

this-tricks-a-treat It has been my custom for the last few years to present a collection of spooky stuff in order to get y’all in the mood for Halloween.  Last year’s column contains links to those of previous years, so if what I share with you today isn’t enough (and really, is it ever possible to get enough spooky fun?) you can go back to those previous columns for more!  Since last year’s column, there have been a few dark or horror-themed columns and stories, including “Windows of the Soul“, “Knock, Knock, Knock“, “May Eve 2016“, “Out of the Dark“, “Clowning Around” and last year’s thanatopsis, “A Necessary End“.  I also featured creepy or spooky-fun videos in Links #277, #278#279, #287, #293#295, #309, #315#316, #318#327 and #328, and here’s a collection of appropriate links:
