WAR ON EARTH !

Posted: December 31, 2018 in Fight war and war mongers

Our cousin was upset. She told my sister, “You should see the card I got in the mail, it has a Christmas tree on it with holes in the branches and says, WAR ON EARTH! Not very nice if you ask me to have to think about such things when we are celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus. Oh my sister thought, I have to see this. I bet my brother who hasn’t spoken a word to our cousin since she voted from that scum bag trump sent it to her. Well dear sister got the card from cousin and sent it along to me and said, Why don’t you write a little something about it for furbirdsqueerly. Yeah I said just maybe I will.

We here at furbirdsqueerly think that we all should be upset. We should be very upset. The only problem we see with the card and the list the card should have more holes.
