This Week In Effin' Birds: April 8, 2022

This Week In Effin' Birds: April 8, 2022
By Michelle Manafy • Issue #58 • View online
This week was chock full of shit. How much time have you got?

A MORE PERFECT UNION
Apparently, you can’t earn billions without finding innovative technology solutions to circumvent inconvenient legal issues and basic human rights. Let’s face it though: this novel tactic is not really an improvement over the classic boss bullying approach (which is rather brilliantly backfiring).
Seems like a great day to drop by the local coffee shop on your way to the library.
ROYALLY FUCKED™
Huh. Weird she didn’t start with word entitled.
DUMBASS MOTHERFUCKER OF THE WEEK
In a week with so many dumbfucks, it was hard to pick just one. But this week’s prize goes to ein dummkopf. No, really: we believe that you just slipped and fell into some white supremacy. Again.
GET REAL
Oh good, we can look forward to an appropriately absurd currency to buy all sorts of expensive fake crap nobody needs.
THIS IS THE PART OF THE NEWSLETTER WHERE WE DUNK ON NFTS
Sure, count me in: because this guy has never been involved with anything questionable in the past. It does offer a rather ideal opportunity for creative crimnals. And man, you know a trend has really blown up when the lawyers get involved.
MEANWHILE, IN CANADA
THE NEWSLETTER EDITOR IS GOING AWOL
See you all on the other side of a much needed week away from all this great news. (But hey, it’s not like I was working much anyways.)
BROUGHT TO YOU BY A SHINY TROPHY THAT SAYS I'M WEIRD
Your vote counts: Effin’ Birds is a nominee for the 26th annual Webby Awards, but I’m gonna need all the help I can get to win since my competition is a motherfucking multimillion dollar film and TV franchise. So head on over there and vote.
Did you enjoy this issue?
