Humble Man Honors Predecessors With Museum, Includes Himself Too

In a grand unveiling of democratic goodwill, a man and national leader inaugurated a museum dedicated to his predecessors — and not to be left behind, himself too. Having bought the first ticket to the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya, he toured the premises in his characteristic humble style, pausing to admire all the faces, including his own — initiating a surgical strike on humility.

This man, who is most definitely not a spoilt child, claims that privately owning a platform where free speech currently happens, will solve all free speech problems — since there won’t be any problems if there isn’t free speech. This problem-solver, however, will not buy hunger problems, poverty problems, or any other problems to do with wealth. That would be a very great problem indeed — for himself.

Man’s Infidelity Unwittingly Starts Feminist Revolution

The internet is abuzz with outrage as a man decided to mess with the wrong woman. After allegations of infidelity and a breakup, netizens protested the betrayal of their queen en masse. Thoroughly sick and tired of men altogether, it took a celebrity scandal to get the ball rolling on the imminent revolution.
