    2018 Comedy Marathon #89

    A pair of sisters declare that the world has gone bad and that they are going to do so as well. Which in practice seems to mean running around and making a bit of a nuisance of themselves while eating and drinking a lot.

I'm not sure it would actually work out like that but it's not completely unrealistic and what's more the price…
