The TKC Communiqué
TKC Communiqué - Not Exactly A Love Letter But Close Enough
By Tony • Issue #43 • View online
Friends, it has been too long.
There’s a lot to catch up on and we hope this update will provide a nice review for those of us with a bit of spare time this evening on the toilet or elsewhere.
It’s important to have standards for your writing … Decent browsing material for those atop the porcelain bowl is about the level to which we aspire … Thankfully, that’s better than most local content.
Let’s get started …

Freedom Is The End Game
A couple of weeks ago we feared that TP panic had reemerged but that seemed to be just a bit of journalistic disaster pr0n - Like those stories about meteors coming close to Earth or movies created for the sole purpose of inspiring your wife to think about divorce.
Don’t worry … This isn’t one of those meandering philosophical sections of the newsletter.
Here at TKC we focus on solutions.
Accordingly …
The new new hotness as we prep to delve into the second horrible COVID winter is toilet matters.
Already we know that mainstream news threatens to muddy the perceptions of a public health crisis with stinky politics …
With Newsom poised to win California recall, another indication COVID politics may be starting to favor Democrats over Republicans
And so, rather than hope that paid liars get serious about protecting their constituents.
We realize that locals might have to save their own behind.
And so …
This isn’t a recommendation but simply something to consider …
Bidets are the new hotness for this next part of the pandemic.
My family doesn't use toilet paper for butt-cleaning anymore. We've switched to bidets, and we're not going back.
Caveat …
Don’t blame TKC if you’re standing next to a toilet wet, crying and cursing a misguided home improvement project.
Installing one of these things isn’t as simple as it seems.
Still, bidets offer some small level of independence from panic buying and supply chain problems that are becoming increasingly common for Americans.
Accordingly …
We don’t claim that reading TKC will save your ass.
We simply want to provide a refreshing alternative amid a shit storm of bad advice that has dominated this time of plague in Kansas City, the nation and the world.
Did you enjoy this issue?
