Mike's Blog Round Up
May 26, 2018

Scholars and Rogues talks back to Prznint Stupid.

Shower Cap heroically reviews the week.

Rubber Hose tried to play the market, but got the timing wrong.

Bonus Track: McSweeney's writes the definitive Tomi Lahren explainer parody.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).
