*THIS IS A COMPLETE JOKE.* August 23rd: The first day of school. You trudge out of class, dragging your feet across the ground, and make your way into the main hallway.

Who cares about Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram when there’s a website that allows you to transform yourself into a powerpuff girl? Honestly I’ve been waiting for this opportunity since I was a 6 year old on Halloween wearing my Blossom costume. The website (found at https://www.powerpuffyourself....
