Happy Festivus!

I hope everyone has their aluminum pole displayed for the holiday. If not, you have all day to do it.

Regarding the feats of strength, let’s put a hold on that this year. With COVID hovering over us I think it would be best to not have any physical contact with each other. Maybe we can bring it back next year.

As for the airing of grievances, put them down in the comments below. I really didn’t want to do them this year as I really didn’t want any negativity floating around. However, some people may need to do it and have kept it inside with hopes they would be able to unleash them on this most magical of holidays.

So, read todays flakes and gripe away in the comments section!
