I’m Adorable

Ode to Oktoberfest?

In the real world, Oktoberfest was cancelled because of Covid.
.
Here on planet Last Kiss, however, I’m carrying on with a mini-Oktoberfest salute so that we can all share a digital drink together.
.
We conclude Monday with a monstrously funny gag from Tony Isabella that fits the Oktoberfest theme perfectly and also launches us into the Halloween season. Cheers!
