That wraps up 2020 for us in The Scholarly Kitchen, we’re off until the new year.

Hey, anyone remember back when it seemed like 2016 was a difficult year? Little did we know. That year, John Oliver gave us a cathartic send-off, and so it seems only appropriate to end 2020 with the same expletive-laden message, writ larger (warning, contains language some may find offensive, even if it is largely accurate).

We’ll see you at the beginning of what we can all hope is a better year. Stay safe.
