The Comment Awards Are Turning Into Butterflies

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hi there, caterpillars! Instagram showed me a sunglasses ad the other day where the model was wearing butterfly clips in their hair. BUTTERFLY CLIPS. We truly have come full-circle from 1997, friends. Seventh grade Queer Girl would be shocked and amazed. Also their scalp would kind of hurt because SO MANY BUTTERFLY CLIPS! Brb, I’m off to zig-zag part my hair and find a high-necked, faux satin spaghetti strap tank top to wear to the school dance!

This week, KKU reviewed Dead Ringers, the Rachel-Weisz-playing-twins thriller from Amazon. This show was REALLY something!!!!

And then there were your comments.

On Guessing Game: *** ***:

The Good Clean Fun Award to Pallas:

This one was so hard for me and it was so satisfying to get it!!! I like having the hint in the puzzle because it gives me less time to think about it before puzzling, reducing the chance that I’ll get it by hint alone. :D I love both play outcomes though, by hint and by guess, and love the versatility of this puzzle. It never disappoints!

On No Filter: This Pic of Chef Melissa King Is Such an Enormous Flex That I Actually Don’t Have the Capacity To Discuss It:
