Hello fellow web crawlers! Andrew here. Welcome to today’s edition of web_crawlr

Our top stories today are about: An Amazon driver delivering a package in a very odd place, a McDonald’s customer saying she was bamboozled by a deal, a life hack to try out next time you book a flight, and a popular streamer who was busted for editing out a key word in a statement about his inappropriate texts. 

After that, we’ve got another edition of “Meme History” for you. 

P.S. — Did you take our weekly news quiz yesterday? If not, there’s still time! Just open yesterday’s newsletter to answer the question. If you guess correctly, you might win a “Take Me Out To The Blog Game” shirt. 

See you next week!
