The darkness has descended once again, fellow LDBCers, and already we have a First Fallen. Bow your heads, and say a word for our 10th-anniversary First Fallen, Ribert Economu, taken down at home, as so many of The Boy’s victims are. (Yes, I suspect there’s at least one typo in there, but you fills out the form, and you takes your chances.)
So we have our battle cry for the season. And all those who find themselves still standing as the sky lights up with each new morning shall shout it to the ceiling to honor those who’ve passed on and gird themselves for the battles to come. Remember, should you fall, please fill out the official reporting form. And if you wish, take a photo of yourself at the moment of your demise, and post it to the Facebook page so that you’re visually memorialized. (Scroll to the bottom here for some inspiration from the past.)
I don’t use Facebook anymore, but please, WARN EVERYONE: YouTube just tried to recommend a new video for me of Jimmy Fallon and Alanis Morissette busking in disguise, singing her hits and… LITTLE EFFING DRUMMER BOY. I obvs didn’t click and live to fight another day, but I fear others may not see the entire description. STAY EVER VIGILANT, ALL!
Thanks, Harris. We’ve put the word out, but that damned thing is still laying people low. The arm of The Boy is long.
