And, as it is Halloween, I am absolutely going to be using some GIFs from It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. But you knew that, didn't you?
|Of course you did.|
It appears that the GOP and its followers are losing their mind. And, as Election Day comes closer, they're doing it quicker.

The only part that is hard to figure out is whether they just hate Democrats, or they're embarrassed at the candidate that they chose. But really, can't it be both?I love how Hillary is trying to abort this baby with her mind and is having trouble smiling cuz she's jonesing to start a war! pic.twitter.com/ALn3yzE9Ci— Jen Nasty Kirkwoman (@JenKirkman) October 27, 2016

The most amazing thing about this election is people are voluntarily reading someone else's work-related emails. I don't even read my own.— Rex Huppke (@RexHuppke) October 24, 2016

But at least we're keeping our sense of humor about all this, right?Thank you Donald J. Trump for voter fraud awareness.— Larry Cooper (@coopah) October 29, 2016
Three in Florida, Virginia charged with voter fraud...ALL REPUBLICANS!!!

My wife & I went to a costume party as each other. She walked around pointing at things, asking how much they cost. I showed up 2 hrs late.— Nice Eric (@ericsshadow) October 27, 2016

ME: I'm not wearing a costume
And, kids: Let your parents go through your candy before you eat any. And if they take anything out, just remember that they're doing it to protect you. It could be poisoned or something you're allergic to or...I don't know...something your parent like. Just don't argue. They know best.

Now, put on your mask (or safety goggles), because we got us a bunch o' them tweets from that there Twitter site that you've heard so many good things about! In no particular order...

And there you have it!
|But wait! There's one more thing...|
There's one last thing. This tweets has too many favorites (or, if you're not sure what that is, it's that stupid little heart at the bottom) to make it onto the list, but I thought it was pretty damn funny, so I decided to give it an honorable mention. @christofrini made me laugh right the heck out loud on this one, and I wanted to give him the nod for a job well done.
See? That didn't hurt.
|At least, not nearly as much as Linus' soul-crushing disappointment later.|
Now get out there and have an awesome week! And to help you along, here's the whole darn It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! episode. Enjoy!
All the best,
