Fight for Your Right to Llama Party

 

On behalf of The Llama Party, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who made it out to my party on Friday! I gave away almost all of my cups, but I have a load of magnets left, so I have some work to do with those. (If you find your car tagged with a beautiful Llama Party magnet, congratulations.)

 

This is actually my last edition before Election Day, which feels kinda good. I mean, hey guys… maybe by this time next week we’ll stop hearing about politics once a winner is decided fair and square! (That’s a joke.)

 

If you haven’t already done so – VOTE! If you’re stuck on the presidential thing, you’re not alone. Spurs Jesus is there for you. Also, consider the importance of the other positions on the ballot. Collectively, those will likely impact you more than the president.
