This is from my translator today.
“Maybe one month or two months ago, the President of America die. I see it in the news.”
At this point I interrupted to say that no, I didn’t think so.
To be honest, though, I was a little nervous that amidst our recent chaos I might have missed it, and I was going to hear it first from my Karen translator in the middle of nowhere.
He continued, “Yes, Obama, he died and the supermarket crashed. The big supermarket. Y’know the biggest supermarket in America?”
“Like Dow Jones?” I asked. “The big stock market?”
“Yes, the biggest supermarket! It crashed. But then it’s the Electronic Army. They lie and say the President die! The market crash, but it is the Electronic Army. But no one know who the Electronic Army is. Who is the Electronic Army?”
I really have no words. I didn’t have any then, either!
