Free Tacos and TV?! A Guide to Quarantine Freebies

The world is in a never ending game of hot lava. Hot Lava is what I’m calling quarantine, by the way, go ahead and try it. The next time you see someone jogging and you feel bad that you’re not exercising just say to yourself, “Oh man… she’s not gonna win, she’s covered in lava.” Congrats on killing it by the way at the hot lava challenge and staying at home. Look at you winning at everything!

Your prize for crushing it is a list of freebies you can do to avoid watching Tiger King for the 17th time. By the way if your partner has sardine oil in their Amazon cart, RUN. You’re in danger! Risk the hot lava!

The Jens also host a podcast of the same name, focused on their love for comedy and food. Saunderson has toured internationally performing in Reykjavik, Edinburgh, London, Prague and Tokyo.
