    A friend of mine wants to know: would you give a small business bump to a small town crack dealer just trying to revitalized an old favorite. He’s even willing to give everyone a sample for free. Again, asking for a friend.

    Foggy Pine rocks!
    So does Mr Colbert!..
    -i bought the “Whose Boat Is This Boat?” book A few years back, because it was a very well-written book….
    -The BEST well written book.. -ALOT OF PEOPLE were saying that there wasn’t an other better, more well written book.
    so i took their advice and got it.
    Turned out, it was rather sad.
    (-But also, it was good to know that all of the proceeds went to the victims of Hurricane Florence in NC)

    This. This right here is why people love the US.
    And Trumpism is the reason why people hate the US.

    I would ask who the 12 partypoopers were who ‘disliked’ this video, but I think I met most of them on the comments section regarding Stephen’s piece on the Dr Seuss book ‘cancellation’.
