Things We Actually Don’t Hate? 🤔

Pudgy Penguins officially hit the shelves at America’s biggest (favorite??) retailer this week — you guessed it — Walmart.

This comes at a time when boomer news outlets like Rolling Stone Magazine is telling us 95% of NFTs are worthless as if 95% of everything they say isn’t total useless garbage.

YOU CAN’T RANK ARTISTS THEY ARE AN IMMEASURABLE UNIQUE PRODUCT OF THEIR TIME.

Sorry that last part was personal.

And as always, a friendly reminder:
