If you eat yourself, do you just get fatter
or simply disappear? Seriously, I feel for
the staffers at all those social media sites,
many of which I regularly visit. Includes
The Onion too, btw. Then there's this:

Pictures Disappear En Masse from G/O Media Posts

So is the problem G/O Media or the crappy
hedge fund Great Hill Partners which owns them?

Which is why I feel for the staff. Either way,
they're all a bunch of chum in a shark tank.

Happy Friday Miss C.

Of course, inflation, average salaries going down, and empty shelves will cancel out the economic growth.
