Ray's now has a three-year lease


A friendly neighborhood tipster passed along some good news from Ray's Candy Store: Ray has signed a new three-year-lease. (Previously, he had been on a month-to-month arrangement.) According to the tipster, the rent will go up each year ... "and of course a deed in hand does not a monthly payment make, but it ought to give the 'hood some hope... right?"

Yes!

NOTHING IS SAVED YOU FILTHBAGS - HE JUST GOT A LEASE. DO YOU BELIEVE HE WILL AFFORD THE MONTHLY RENTS? DOUBTFUL.

At least he's not a month away from being kicked out. I'm sure if he's short on his rent, he'll let people know and we can have another benefit for him.
