Oh Bernie

Oh Bernie. I can only imagine what was going through your head in this moment. So, you’ve become a meme. I can only imagine what that means to you as well. Cute ole Bernie. Look at him now waiting for the Amazon delivery truck. Oh look, he’s hanging out with the guy from the Sopranos. […]
