All hell rained down on most blends today, with FVF and Brown Twist #4 looking like they just ran a marathon butt-naked in an acid-rain monsoon. Nary a blend exceeds twenty hit points now. Beyond that, only four blends sit semi-comfortably in the teens.

In other news, Anomalous - the sole Per Georg Jensen blend, now perches precariously on the verge of death. Until recently, Anomalous was anonymous, but somehow it surfaced don't the radar of these taste-based villains.

Indeed, this special crumble cake - formed of the Katerini perique harvested in the heart of Greece, alongside to-shelf burley to offer hand-crafted and lovingly formulated lasting raison-sensation - has been thwacked on the head by tasteless and wanton heathens.

All I ask is why. Brown Twist #4 (upon whose hill @andrew hopes to die) is nigh, and Rouxgaroux toux. Maybe come after Anomalous when these are throux. But, I get it, when it comes to voting, you have to doux what feels troux to youx.
