Holy Gravity! Sir Kaiser
Sir Kaiser – Sir Rich,
Have you noticed anything strange about the upcoming American Innovation release?
Other than its not Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, no.
Damn it man I ran out today those old ladies stopped eating bats and started eating Cherry Garcia now the shelves are bare.
My old prehistoric computer implies American Innovation Vermont may be sold via Enrollments but I’m just not sure……..
Is there such a thing as a ‘state of the art HP?’ I did not know that.
That’s good to know – I will stop panicking now
IT’S MY FAVORITE SERIES! THE INNOVATION DOLLARS!
It appears that “Vermont” is accounted for via enrollments but in any case I believe the Mintage for this one is the lowest of the series so far…………………..
Never a dull moment.
I Envy Us.
