My sister texted me, “Shania Twain looks like a Nintendo villain,” and it’s absolutely correct. When Luigi’s Mansion 4 comes out (please God, let them make one), I fully expect them to set it at Shania’s Swiss Castle, and she will wear this for the most INCREDIBLE Big Boss Fight ever. “I feeeeeel like a plumber,” Luigi will sing, holstering his ghost-sucking vacuum with a grin.
Also: The first issue of our new Substack, called Drinks With Broads, is going out in a few hours. (We mentioned it atop Fugs & Pieces on Friday, but wanted to re-up it here for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.) There are both free and paid tiers — $5 a month, which I just learned is LESS THAN HALF the cost of a Big Mac meal at McDonald’s, WHAT IS HAPPENING OVER THERE — so there’s something for everyone. Thank you so much for all the extremely kind notes and pledges of support we’ve gotten from you; the paid tier was not an easy ask for us, but the media landscape really sucks right now and Substack is an elegant (and fun) way for us to subsidize our work on GFY while still keeping the website free and accessible to everyone. No matter what you do — free, paid, or nothing at all — we are so grateful for Fug Nation and for the enthusiasm and love you’ve always shown us. Thank you.
Now: SHANIA. WHAT.
