I’ve been out of it the last few days, is this for real? Or like is an April Fool’s joke?

Happy Easter from The Fitzwilliam Museum. This rabbit is by an unknown potter from Valencia, Spain, c. 1450 – 1500. This broken piece is every bit as intriguing and thought-provoking as our current show of British studio pottery, ‘Things of Beauty Growing’ open tomorrow and this Bank Holiday Monday 12 – 5pm. #ceramics #ceramic #ceramicsculpture #studiopottery #studiopotter #bankholiday #rabbitsofinstagram

I guess this is tRump’s Easter twit:

I love this response:

Simple…yes?

In yet another, no it’s not a fucking joke…it’s real life moment:

Well, Happy Easter to all who celebrate it…

This is an open thread.

        Luna,

        So wait, the Puddy Tat was named Sylvester for a reason?

        My favorite thing about learning something new is how that thing that you never knew, or never quite put together was right there in plain sight and well known to others the whole time!

        When you said Felis Silvestris Catus my light bulb went DING!

    Sacramento sheriff’s vehicle hits woman during Stephon Clark protest and drives away, video shows

    A 61-year-old woman was struck by a police vehicle as it peeled away from protesters demonstrating against the police killing of Stephon Clark in what was described by the victim and protesters as a hit and run.

    Wanda Cleveland, a local activist, was hit in her right leg and taken to a hospital, where she was treated for injuries to her arm and back of the head and released.

    Cres Vellucci, the region’s observer coordinator, also was at the scene. He told The Post that he flagged down a California Highway Patrol officer nearby in a police cruiser. He said he told the officer that a crime may have been committed and that there were witnesses and photographs to gather for an investigation.

    “Get out of here or I’ll arrest you,” the officer told him twice, Vellucci said. The officer then exited the car and chased him across the street, he added. The California Highway Patrol did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

      /*hysterical laughter icon*/

      Trump’s real estate holdings, specifically those in New York City, have taken a big hit in the past year, as retail values are struggling in response to Amazon’s e-commerce gains.

      According to Forbes research, the president is worth $3.1 billion, down from $3.7 billion a year ago. The loss has him moving from 156th on the list down to 248th.

      /*thigh-slapping hysterical laughter icon*/

      248th Gawd. What a loser. Hahahahahahaha.
