Happy new year! Relax, you haven’t been so drunk, that you’ve managed to upset the very laws of time and space in a manner that would make the head of the Doctor spin around in his TARDIS. Sure, the western new year may have already started, but today marks the beginning of the much cooler, lunar Chinese new year that we’ll all eventually adopt when our new eastern lords and masters finally purchase the continent and force us all to make Apple products.

This year, we say goodbye to the year of the Goat Simulator, and hello to the year of the monkey! Some of the best monkeys came from China, including the king of all of them, Son Goku. According to my ancient historical texts, he’s the mythical figure who helped free the the universe from the tyranny of Frieza and defeated Majin Buu.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
