THINGS HAVE CHANGED. JUST A BIT.

THANKFULLY, ALL THAT HOT AIR YESTERDAY DIDN’T DESTROY THE EARTH AS I FEARED IT MIGHT. BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW CLOSE IT WAS.
One more nonsense rumor or bit of hype, and the planet was done for. By refusing to jump into the transfer deadline day fray, KCKRS did its part. Really, you should be thanking us for saving the planet. Just follow and like and we’ll call it even.
