Recycled Cardboard BOX

Even I can hardly believe what a dog BOX has become. I first wrote this snarky post about the freshly-launched IPO.

Very near the end of the speech, it was clear something was wrong. I thought she was missing the last page of her speech, or she had become very, very lost, and watching this real time, it was pretty surreal…….
