What’s even better than coming up with something original, intelligent, witty, thought-provoking, or entertaining? Why, not doing any of those things of course! And so for something that’s not original, not intelligent, provokes not one single thought, and is less entertaining than sand-counting on Playa Boredomo, the most boring beach along the Costa del Dreary: more animated GIFs found amongst the posts of some of the...
