Quarterly Update 5, Summer 2016

Quarterly Update 5 is live! If you’re from Arkansas or Missouri, you may want to have a bunking party to celebrate! If you’re in New Jersey or New York jumping for joy, please don’t bunk your head. Folks in Texas might say this update is a bird’s nest on the ground—so no bird-thrashing needed! Just grab your blickey and gather up some new words before the blackberry summer ends (Or is it blackberry winter?)
