Core values

There was an ad in the subway today for the latest exhibit at the Museum of Sex, entitled Hard Core: A Century and a Half of Obscene Imagery.


It’s not that difficult for me to imagine  that such pictures exist,  especially at this particular venue.  But for the museum itself to use the word obscene to describe the art it displays seems like an argument against its own credibility.

Then again, you do have to pay to get in…

So I guess the marketing  department knows what they are doing.


Southern comfort

Did you know Cracker Barrel has an online store?


I was dozing on the couch and a commercial woke me up with the news.

For someone like me who doesn’t live near the Barrel, this is good news. Unfortunately you can’t order those nasty good Southern veggies online…or have Uncle Herschel’s breakfast delivered hot to your door.

But a ceramic owl spoon rest is nice, too.


Welcome to the dictionary, oh favorite exclamation of mine.

I can remember the perplexed stares of strangers when I first pulled out the phrase. Then I saw it on TV in a commercial for Discover card.

And now it’s made the dictionary, in the same issue with ‘hangry.’

If only there was a word for what an amazing week this has been….

Oh yeah!

Oh, Wendy

Baconator fries are a thing?


Yes, please.

Things that make you go ugh
