3. "Earlier in the day before I started drinking I watched a heartbreaking snippet on Facebook about a dying polar bear. It broke my heart. Later that night we were out for my girlfriend’s birthday and I had too much tequila. The next morning she woke up and told me she had a weird email from the World Wildlife Fund. And I had a weird transaction in my bank account also from World Wildlife Fund.

I got drunk and adopted her a polar bear. The gift message read 'surprise bitch here’s a polar bear.'"
