“I wonder if there’s beer on the sun.” -Zap Rowsdower, “The Final Sacrifice” (1990)

Penjamin (@upsidedowntrash) also known as Will, is one of the nicest and funniest guys I’ve met through Twitter. Some of his wildly successful tweets are just the best, and he has managed to find fun and unique ways to keep twitter interesting. He took a hiatus and the community missed him too much and demanded that he return. Now he’s back and better than ever, ladies and gentleman, welcome our very favourite space raccoon, WILL!


Get to know Will: Origin of the name Penjamin

Story: “Chicken Sandwich Dilemma” Will shares a time when he was faced with the ultimate decision, and makes a bold, unpredictable choice.
