Ripping the Headlines Today, 1/16/23

Making fun of the headlines today, so you don’t have to

The news, even saying that Bed, Bath and Beyond could go bankrupt, doesn’t need to be complicated and confusing; that’s what any new release from Microsoft is for. And, as in the case with anything from Microsoft, to keep the news from worrying our pretty little heads over, remember something new and equally indecipherable will come out soon.
