With the closing of over 200 stores nationwide, ‘Toys R Us’ is officially renaming themselves ‘Toys Was Us’. “We want to keep a positive outlook during this trying time,” CEO Geoffrey Giraffe stated while packing up his Barbie Dreamhouse. “I’ve tried to hang myself three times.

LITTLE ROCK, AR—After digging for a whole five minutes near a quarry, seven-year-old boy Timothy O’Leary found a rock that he believes is valuable. “This is better than all these other rocks at least.” O’Leary said as he felt the smooth parts and rough parts with equal enthusiasm. “My friend Caleb told me that he traded a rock to his friend Jacob’s uncle for a bee gun.” O’Leary was especially enamored with the translucent quality which he figured would add some big bucks if given to the right bidder.

The riders, most of whom were under 10 years old, surrendered the Sombrero in tears.
