Piggins: Swell! Welcome to this edition of ye ole sweet Hellbox!

Piggins: I mean…
Take it as you may.
But wow it really offers some tasty nuance. So let’s not bury the damn lede much longer!

Piggins: Say—those that stream out of your default state—aside from your unique nature—keepin’ that to tha side ‘cos damn! Are we not just a series of states??
