trying to catch up on One Piece after like a decade off. I left off in the middle of the Arabasta Arc.

is... is this just not a fun thing to watch? i just watched 5 episodes where they were mostly just struggling to walk in a straight line because everyone is Too Wacky to function outside of life or death struggles. the characters even talked about it a little in one episode, but then just kept yelling and getting lost in the desert.

i had a coworker once who just never filled out the periodic required self-evaluation forms. every 6 months when "perf" season struck, you could find them at their desk, serenely archiving unopened emails with subjects like "ACTION REQUIRED" and "LATE".

and... nothing bad ever happened. i eventually switched teams, but as far as i know they've gone decades without doing this "required" busywork.

do Uruk-hai ever accidentally take a bath and wash off the rad white hand print? its like their big bosses hand so you can't just forge it, no?
imagining the constant queue of sheepish and suspiciously clean Super Goblins lined up outside Sauraman's office 24/7
