Put up-election celebrations took many kinds this previous weekend after President-elect Joe Biden was projected to be the forty sixth president of the US. These ranged from mass dance events on the street to numerous on-line expressions of some much-needed collective schadenfreude on the expense of Donald Trump and his surrogates who refuse to simply accept the fact of his loss.
