Afternoon Snack

Hello, POMEs! Take a break from your long day of doing ~whatever it is you’re up to~ and join us for a tasty Afternoon Snack!


Because today is a special Doing Weed day, we took a few minutes to learn about the extreme over-growing of weed that’s happening in Oregon, causing prices to drop significantly. The west coast may not have any toilet paper or Lysol, but we got plenty of drugs to help us forget!


Celebrities REALLY ARE just like us!
