👀🍿🧃 Posh tag sale, a $50M bad day & dangerous TikTok avocados
And KimK's corporation name is hilariously bad.
“I Bought 6 Things at Martha Stewart’s Tag Sale- But I could have stolen any number of them.” - I’m not sure you can still call something a tag sale if you’ve charged people $250 for the privilege of browsing but mmkay.
“The FDA Warns Against Storing Avocados in Water After a Video of the Hack Goes Viral” - Admittedly when I saw this “hack” my initial thought was “I wonder if it works” vs. “I wonder if it’s safe” and that’s probably something I need to address.
“Kim Kardashian's SKKN Accused of Stealing Name From Lori Harvey's Nearly Identical SKN Skincare” - First flagged by Diet Prada, the audacity of this woman is infuriating. Also wait— did anyone know that Kim K’s business entity is called Kimsaprincess Inc???
“Instagram’s female maskers know you think they’re weird” - I’m proud of these people doing what makes them happy! It could help if the eye-holes of some of these masks were less jarring, that’s what scares me the most?
“Tiger King Star Doc Antle Arrested by FBI in South Carolina” - Seems that there’s some poetic justice for the tigers with all these animal handlers also ending up behind bars, rawr.

“CoStar takes action against meme account; fired employees allege retribution” - This is a fascinating story— and of course in trying to punish employees that engaged (note the quote said that they didn’t fire anyone for following the account) with the CoStar meme account, it’s only gotten the account more visibility.
“First Look at Kathleen Buhle's Memoir: Hunter Biden's Ex on His Affair with Sister-in-Law — and Forgiveness” - This woman is incredible for going through her ordeal with such grace and patience, I recognize I would have reacted much differently (read: poorly).
“Citigroup’s Fat-Finger Trade Seen Costing Bank More Than $50 Million” - This is the kind of story I try and remember anytime I’ve had a bad day at work, it really helps put things into perspective.
“Reality TV stars Todd and Julie Chrisley are found guilty of running years long fraud conspiracy and hiding their money from IRS and face 30 years in prison: Scorned gay lover of father-of-five tipped off feds to their crimes when fling ended” - Things are clearly not going well if you’re exchanging little bags of money in parking garages.
