It's just all #Walkout, all day here at Yr Wonkette. We are so proud of all these terrific kids! Also, we're not crying, YOU'RE crying:

And now it's on to a bunch more pics and tweets, because really, you don't need too much commentary getting in the way. LOOK AT YOUR BEAUTIFUL KIDS!

This 2nd-grader just really wanted to have his say, so he went and joined the high school kids:

Justin in North Carolina was the only one to walk out of his school. He worried that maybe six people might see his post on Twitter. Bit more than that!

"Ben" worried that maybe some kids were being forced to be pawns in others' games, like those two brave kids above who walked out all by themselves, obviously because of peer pressure:

"Gerry," a correspondent for Reuters, thinks "Ben" is a bit of a pillock:

There were other brilliant reactions to certain people's attempts to trivialize the walkouts, too:

Georgia:

Maryland:

Hawaii:

You didn't even really have to be in school to walk out:

OK, Mr. Shapiro, we think maybe we found a participant who may not have been entirely there of their own volition. But they have a pretty good scribble!

Looks like a fine little radical to us all the same. And it is now your OPEN THREAD.

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
