    • I’m broke too, but now we can both add “Made a lion pun on the internet this one time and got an award for it” to our resumes and secure fabulous well-paying jobs as a result! It’s the perfect plan.

      • I definitely have “Quoted Mean Girls on the internet many times and got an award for it once” on my resume. XD

  1. “You’re a wanker, number nine!” This reminds me to get WANKER – 9 personalized soccer jersey from the Black Swan-themed soccer team called Portman-Kunis United.
