Comments Of The Week, Edition 64
Another week of debatable wit reviewed!
Once again Stab presents a curation of questionable keyboard murmurs from your favourite discussion platform. We’ve waded through the masses of overwhelming beauty and brilliance harvested in the comments section of this dot com and selected our faves. Remarkable how similar genius and insanity are, right? Anyhow, here is week’s ripest fruit.
