Queen death, satire but not
You shall not declare that the King is 'not your king' even though you did not choose him and have no decision either way in the matter. Failure to comply will lead to arrest. Yes, we are a democratic country, why do you ask? 🤔

This is a mastodon instance that allows users to share ideas and participate in discussions.
Whitespashe is named after the Admins' first joint coding project, which replaced spaces within a Word document with non-printable characters.
