I don't know why but the poorly timed "SQUAD.... SQUAD!" cracked me up. And so did the "nailed it!" on the second one.

Ok I felt a little bad for whoever had to come up with the contents of that DQ box and did their best to come up with something for an absurd mandate from the higher ups. One summer I worked at RedBox adjacent to the marketing department where someone was like "Let's do some kind of summer camp themed promotion with activities and stuff" and there was a big scramble to figure out what that meant and what at all could be done that would look like that. That bit felt a little like laughing at instead of laughing with, at something that didn't really deserve it. But that feeling is highly based on that one specific experience I had. I just thought it was interesting.

I felt we were laughing at Dairy Queen, not at whoever came up with the DIY shadow puppets (which are actually kinda cute even if they don't include Lincoln's profile) or whatever. Oh my lord, here's their fire.
