Summertime – Thesaurus

Summertime is a time for summer. Here’s some pastiche from the Thesaurus, because it’s always good to have healthy options. Malapropisms are fun in the sun, capiche? Summer fun, summer play, summer all day cuz we don’t care a button, we don’t care a fig. Now go play. www.buttonsandfigs.com . {sound fx from Zapsplat, Italian music from Italy’s open source project www.canzoneitaliana.it}
