Since I've just recently learned what WAP means, I cannot swipe a credit card at the store without giggling. My life is just a little bit better because of Cardi B.

Used to travel to Britain a lot. In those days there were always strikes going on. The strikers called their activity "industrial action." I called it "industrial inaction".
