Everyone, it's time for more Grump drama, and this time, we've hit the motherload: welcome to Grump Fuck Ups: Coronavirus Edition!
- First up, on the YouTube side of things: as we all know, Grumps have started going back to daily uploads, which already: you'd think they'd be doing these videos outside of the office to avoid getting sick in one of the biggest hotspots for the virus but nope! It's all still happening at the office.
- As such, they've decided to whore themselves out with, what else: Sonic and Dead Rising playthroughs for maximum profit, with sponsorships littered throughout the beginning of these videos for Arpeegees: Wave 2.
- Now you might be thinking, based on that second title: "Eugh, that's a bit of a weird title considering everything that's going on." Don't worry, Ben's got you covered.
- And yes, the merch store and the Arpeegees are still being manufactured and shipped out to people directly from their office in L.A., even though they're not an essential service. Meaning they could potentially spread the coronavirus in the future if they're not careful enough to keep everything sterilized and clean.

- Also a reminder: Dan is still traveling directly to Arin's place to record any non-TMPH/office content, even though the entire state of California is under lockdown right now. So if there becomes a sudden absence of videos sometime during the crisis, that might be why.
- Meanwhile, Arin's touring business isn't doing so hot. So in order to try and keep the business afloat, they're selling $25 T-Shirts in order raise funds for the employees, with a portion of proceeds going to the NOMAD Fundraiser.
“Doing our best to take care of our tour friends and family during these trying times. Please help/share if you can. These are the hustlers on the front lines who work hard to make live events happen. https://t.co/EoB5stntRK”twitter.com
- Seems innocent enough. Until you realize they...aren't actually telling people how much of the proceeds are actually going to the NOMAD Fundraiser. No matter how many people ask. Oops.
- As an aside, why such expensive T-Shirts? Everyone's social distancing, out of work, or incredibly poor right now. Not only is no one able to buy these that doesn't already have some reserve money already saved up, but nobody's going to see you wearing them.
- So even if you didn't think any of this was a big deal, and you wouldn't be remiss for thinking so, you'd think this'd receive some levity from the fandI'm totally fucking with you, of course the Lovelies are sucking their dicks and getting hyper-defensive.
Remember kids: you can't complain about corporate because the disease is worse so you need to focus on that and only that and nobody else because Arin's a precious cinammon roll who can do no wrong uwu.
- This doesn't really fit in anywhere else, but Game Grumps Twitter has also been heavily promoting costhots who've dressed as the Game Gyaru characters ever since that animation, and if I had to look at this, so do all of you.

- Arin and Dan DLC has been added to the game per House Party's newest update.

- Dream Daddy's Twitter has been tweeting about gay daddy Tom Nook and everything is wrong and nothing will ever be right again.
“#AnimalCrossing #ACNH the official dream daddy twit acc said that tom nook is daddy so i went ham”twitter.com“Imagine: daddy Tom Nook in a dating sim, giving you the landlord sexy talk that'd make anyone horny. But for real: if you're a landlord & you're in a financial situation that allows you to do this... consider doing it. Stay safe. #AnimalCrossing #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons”twitter.com
