Don’t make that face, we’re just telling it like it is. The latest debate on the internet involves a twitter post by Austin Braun who reacted to another twitter post about Pineapple on pizza.
Since Brauns Sunday tweet, the internet has gone nuts. Here’s some of the online coverage on “Peepza,” I’ll spare you the gooey twitter back and forths, but let us know your thoughts….Peeps or Pineapple?
