News, but not the serious kind
Welcome! Did you come to prey?
Blog Guy, I really need social advice. I’ve been invited to what looks like a glitzy party, but the invite says BYOF. Is that like RSVP?
Cripes, you really DO need help! BYOF stands for Bring Your Own Falcon.
Falcon? You mean like the Ford car? I haven’t seen one of those for 30 years!
Calm down. No, I mean like the bird. Sits on your arm with a creepy little hood on.
What’s the point of bringing one of those to a party?
There will be professional buyers there, looking for the best-looking falcons.
Really? What are those buyers called?
