this dog has something to say to you

It's not "deedle deedle deedle."

Also, Garfield Minus Garfield is shockingly funny. Exponentially more funny than Garfield With Garfield.

Some numbers, basically stolen from Feministe, because I have no idea what to say about this myself.

-87: The percentage of Afghan women who report suffering physical abuse, half of which is sexual.
-60: The percentage of marriages in Afghanistan which are forced.
-57: The percentage of Afghan brides who are under the age of 16.
-88: The percentage of Afghan women who are illiterate.
-5: The percentage of Afghan girls attending secondary school.
-1 in 9: The number of women in Afghanistan who die in childbirth — that’s the highest in the world, alongside Sierra Leone.
-1 Million: The number of Afghan widows who have no rights, including no right to work — leaving them to beg on the street.
-£800 to £2,000: The price of a child bride in Afghanistan.

I'm so glad our great motherfucking nation brought freedom to Afghanistan.
