  • We have home-brewed Karens here

    She's entitled, she's ignorant, and she's often a racist, too. Locally we do have our own black Karens with asymmetrical bobs (and sometimes without) who always want to speak to the manager. Well, racist is pushing it of course. Karen...

  • Body Mass Index and Rubbish Weight Loss Programmes
