Here are our faves that circulated within the first 48 hours:

Oh pfffffffffffffft.

Then came the memes telling everyone to calm down, it wasn’t some kind of nationwide doubles vendors association decision

Some got really specific about which doubles in particular. Shout out to Looptt.com for their article on 5 spots where doubles are still $4
