In Fourteen Hundred and Ninety-Two, Columbus Sailed the Ocean Blue. Christopher Columbus sailed into infamy and ‘found’ the New World. 14.92 was also the average donation to the Women’s March, which they announced in an email to supporters.
The progmatists were super-naturally outraged. How dare they announce that the sum collected divided by the number of donors was equal to $14.92.
The emails in response would make for hours of amusement (if we could read them), but at some point, outrage reached a level where even The Women’s March had to say something about it.
We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.

They erect their own “statue” and then have to tip it over.
Twitter was, shall we say, amused.
“Let’s all chip in and raise the amount to $17.76. Then they’ll really lose their minds.”
They’d have to have a mind, even just half of one, to lose it.
*Progmatists was spelled that way deliberately.
