Seppuku, Or: After drinking too much wine and saying and doing idiotic things at a fundraiser for a nonprofit I used to work for....

to rip their small intestine
from their torso
when they felt shamed....

    Hold on
    I need to laugh like this is super funny.

    You said nonprofit and fundraiser which lowered the fun in the title
    But raised a snort in my laugh!
    Those Samurais.... So intense, so dramatic. (Report) Reply
