Welcome to v.22.0 of the Field Intelligence Report. Tired of the bad news, articles and comments that annoy, anger, and infuriate you? Yeah, we get annoyed by it all, too. So much so, we forgot to activate FreakyDoll last week, and thus there was no FIR last Thursday! Whoops!
Not this week, though. Kick back with your coffee or adult beverage of choice and enjoy our compilation of stories aimed to inspire, energize, uplift, and restore your faith in all that’s good, true, and beautiful. The Crapola-Reductionizer Filters are set to ‘high’ – because we remembered to turn them on this week!
