I think we can all sympathize

The saying goes “work smarter, not harder,” but what if instead of working smarter, you worked really, really hard creating a lie so elaborate it eventually involves the cops to avoid working at all? It doesn’t sound like the best plan, because it’s not, but it does make for a good story.

Police in Coolidge, Arizona found 19-year-old Brandon Soules next to a water tower, bound and gagged. He told the police that he had been abducted from his home by two masked men, then knocked unconscious by his kidnappers and driven around the town before being dumped by a…


TRY THE NEW PEE DONUTS

Comedy, like all art, is subjective. What tickles the ol’ funny bone for you may be crickets for somebody else, and that’s fine! There are a few things, however, that damn near everybody is guaranteed to at least chuckle at.

For example, everyone loves a good word fumble.

You know, things like when you go to say “good” and “great” at the same time and end up saying “grood”. Or when third graders try to write out how proficient their parents are in the kitchen and “cook” becomes “cock”. …

Bravo, Senator, you’ve really outdone yourself this time

As if a global pandemic wasn’t enough, a polar vortex has swept most of the continental US, bringing with it dangerous icy conditions and record breaking cold. Although Texas Senator and frumpy off-brand Wolverine Ted Cruz laughed at the California wildfires and how they impacted the state’s power grid just seven months ago, in a turning of the tables nobody wanted regardless of how you feel about him, Texas’ independent power grid run on all the fossil fuels and none of the regulation that Ted Cruz boasted would never fail, has failed. Massively.

Over three million Texans have been without…

They say that “everything is bigger in Texas” — I guess that includes the severity of their winter weather… right?

As a Midwesterner who has lived through decades of below-zero winters, it is tempting (and honestly fun) to make fun of Texans for not being able to handle their sh*t when the weather gets cold.

HOWEVER, this is beyond common sense: Texas’ infrastructure was literally NOT built for this and — as a result — has left millions without power, heat, water, OR a way to flee to warmer shelter. What’s (almost) worse: This unusual weather has exposed how outdated Texas’ power grid is (which could leave Texans with intermittent power for the next MONTH) and…


Personally I would love to be represented by a cat

You’d think that after almost a full year under coronavirus lockdowns (dear GOD) we’d have all become pretty used to the pandemic changes and “new normals”, yet here I am still walking all the way to the grocery store entrance before I realize I’ve forgotten my mask and panicking during Zoom meetings because it’s my turn to talk and I can’t find the unmute button. Fortunately for me and anyone else who’s still struggling with the basic functions of virtual meetings, we’re not alone.

In Texas this week, attorney Rod Ponton attended virtual proceedings via Zoom as a cat.

A first for not only the Texas Judicial Courts, but likely in any American court. …

Valentine’s Day can be a bit of a slap in the face if you’re not part of a happy coupling, and looking back on it I realized I’ve had some abysmal Valentine’s Days, so in an attempt to make myself feel better I reached out to my twitter followers and my friends to ask for some of their worst V-Day stories. Folks, there were some doozies.

I’ll get us started.

One year my grandma invited me to dinner with her and my grandpa two weeks before Valentine’s Day because I guess she just assumed I wasn’t…


Subsequently makes my entire day

One thing that everyone on this earth knows to be true, regardless of where you’re from or what language you speak, is that small things are adorable. Specifically, miniature versions of things that are usually people-sized. That’s why Converse or Timberland boots for babies are so goddamn cute, they’re like regular shoes!! But small!!!! That’s also why things like “Tiny Kitchen” exist and do so well, because we just really love miniature stuff.

You know what else we love? Animals in human clothes. Seeing a French bulldog in a yellow raincoat tickles us just as…
