Filed Under: Humor

If you spend any amount of time on the internet, chances are that you’ve seen the “Evil Kermit” memes (if you have no clue what I’m talking about, here’s some context).

As many of you may remember, Andrew B won a trip to Helsinki a few years back thanks to his excellent meme-making skills, and we’ve been friends ever since.

    Also me: Need more EQMs!!!! Let’s do Tokyo to Houston to Newark to Boston. Looks like there are only middle seats left on the tpac flight :/

    True story. Took the Houston itinerary!

    Me: I can fly San Diego to Seattle and first class Emirates to Dubai on a 777 with Alaska Miles.
