Pinned toot

how dare you come into my mentions and say I’m not allowed to shitpost. I was there. I was there when hellhomer went down. I was there for goth ms frizzle’s mencia moment. I was there when the biggest weird twitter couple in New Orleans broke up. I was there when horse ebooks was revealed. I’m a ten year veteran of the posting wars

put the pasta in a glass bowl with 1 and 3/4 cups hot water.

Microwave for 5 minutes.

Pause, stir, microwave for another 5 minutes.

Add a quarter cup of milk, 2 tbps of butter and the cheese packet.

Done. Perfect Kraft dinner.
