Whoah, what is this? If it doesn’t smell fishy, it must at least smell like fish poop. Not that you’d find an option to ship that, though on Shit Senders, which allows you to order fresh dung (choose from the fine produce of cows, elephants, gorillas — or make a combo shit pack) and send it to the vile company you keep.
