We won’t pretend to know what exactly Fall Out Boy is doing, or why. But last month Pete Wentz teased his to-do list on twitter and instagram:
As you can see, this to do list featured many fascinating tasks. Notably, ‘finish recording MANIA‘ (yes please), ‘take monster suits to be dry cleaned’ (if Brendon Urie‘s reaction to the suit is anything to go by, a very good idea), and ‘fidget spinners’. Before we go any further, we at Don’t Bore Us take full responsibility for the addition of ‘fidget spinners’ to the list, and apologise unreservedly:
got it make purple Fidget spinner wit blue tooth speaker merch 😈😈😈

ANYWAY, another list addition had Fall Out Boy fans everywhere asking ‘what to heck?’- what did he mean by ‘send out trophies to fans?’. Surely Fall Out Boy isn’t out here literally posting trophies off to fans? Well! Yes, they are.
The first fans are seeing trophies and hand-written notes from Pete Wentz arrive in the post.

No word on how many fans are being sent trophies, but they are currently arriving at random to people who have pre-ordered MANIA.
