Editors note BadJoke

Good evening everyone! I present to you this belated and brief eighteenth issue of the Bootleggers Buzz.

In contrast to last week, this issue is incredibly brief, but I believe that leaves the perfect spotlight for our headlining article! With his first article written for the Buzz, Caboose eloquently breaks down the reason for the mystery behind the game and what a great read it is! Fuckle furnishes his thoughts and Spine imparts upon us two brilliant articles. Our new writer to join the team, MysticW1g pointed out how fitting my name is as I tell terrible jokes, and offers to take over, and I personally think will do a much better job with it than I could! And last but not least, we revived a freelance submission from 7upr about Caboose!

As always, we need a larger team! I promise you'll have fun if you join the Buzz Team, and I'm always willing to answer all your questions, so don't hesitate to ask anyone anything!

Thank you all, and I hope you'll join me in looking forward to next week's issue!
