Point: Ingrit the Wood Witch The "Status" Image: shelby slauerWhy would you look "basic" taking Instagram pictures in front of a large corporate chain when you could look "like you're drinking something with rabbit in it" in front of some thick pines and Ingrit's boiling pot? The choice is SIMPLE. Point: Ingrit the Wood Witch Any Questions? The most pressing question you probably have is, "How is the Boiled Rabbit Smoothie a smoothie when there is boiling water and no ice?" And the answer is simple: we use yogurt of course!
