Lil Peace Treaty: August 4, 2012

While wars are being waged left and right on Sweetest Mama Earf, you can count on a shining yung nation with a maxed-out GDT (gross domestic trill) to negociate da peace terms.

We have tried-and-tru diplomats on our side. Catty Annan’s got plenty of fancy feast to go around 4 all da cool cats seeking sanctuary and Ban Kitty Moon meows whenever the worldvibe needs to chill out (it’s 2 cute, u can’t resist it like catnip).

Sweetest Drip is b-deep in the front-lines of all things poppin’ around the world. There are many of city-states, realms, and ideological utopias that we just wanna shake hands ‘n sip tea wif.

Double-check with your advisers, have a fireside chat wit da constituents. This Lil Peace Treaty stands 4ever
