Save the cats

Guys and gals of the hardo hive, it turns out cats can’t live solely off of love and five star reviews, so just send in the car already.

5 Stars, cool

What kind of dumpers are y’all? Do you go plop then tinkle or tinkle then plop?

Wineliquor ,

For a good time…

Great, relatable group of guys giving their daily opinions and thoughts on current events and more. Funny, smart and a great departure from the daily depressing politics. Found Hard Factor on IG a while back and have been hooked ever since. Highly recommend sending in the car on their Patreon for the extra content. Good stuff that you should check out.
