This animal photo bomb isn’t from a horror film –
But don’t you think it should be?
“The call came from inside the aquarium — run for your lives!!”
“Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke.” -Steve Martin
I saw We are the Millers this week and did not puke once.
In fact, I am confounded why a majority of movie critics were so harsh toward the comedy.
Perhaps I have seen too many R-rated comedies, but I think the “offensive content” in Millers pales in comparison to The Hangover trilogy or, say, This is the End.
The movie actually supported family values, for cripes sake…albeit in a subversive, round-the-bend way.
So ignore the critics like you usually do and laugh a lot. If you find it offensive…
Well, consider that a bonus.
Do you know what these stickers mean?
She doesn’t know what they are. Her Facebook friends (including me) don’t know. And my Google image search didn’t turn up anything either. So now I am widening her appeal –
What the what?
I have to say…I did find a lot of other interesting minivan stickers during my brief image search. Take a look!
George Alexander Louis?
I’m sorry, Royal Baby.
I know there is a long history of King Georges — six, in fact — but all I see when I hear the name “George” is George Costanza of Seinfeld infamy. And while he was a great TV sitcom character, I wouldn’t wish a son like him on William and Kate.
Or anyone, really.
Now, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had gone with “Alexander” as a first name, I would be all over that. Maybe they are planning to call you by your middle name. Most of the kids I grew up with were called by their middle names. I always found it kinda odd…like their parents couldn’t make up their minds. But I would gladly support it in this instance.
If not — if they decide to go with George — well, I return to my previous submission –
By now you all know that His Royal Highness has been born to William and Kate. His name, though, they say “may take some time.” Don’t worry –
I’m all over it.
Sebastian also has British ties. It’s in the Top 100 list of boy’s names. Sebastian Cabot is a British actor; Sebastian Faulks, a British writer. And there are characters named Sebastian in popular British fiction, including Sherlock Holmes and Brideshead Revisited.
Most importantly, I like it.
Look, I’m only trying to expedite the process. Princess Diana and Prince Charles took seven days to name William; William and Kate took three weeks to name their dog, Lupo; and Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip took a month to name Charles.
Let’s not give the child an identity crisis!
I have always liked my oldest brother’s name –
It’s strong. One syllable. And you don’t hear it coming and going.
But when I think about my brother and imagine him personified as an inanimate object, I have to admit this never even cracked the Top 50.
You’re way burlier than this, big bro.
Ever made fun of a beauty pageant contestant? I know I have.
(Two words: Miss Utah.)
But here’s a beauty pageant that will have you cheering.
The 37 contestants, all with learning or physical disabilities, are celebrated at this annual event founded by Abbey Curran, a former Miss Iowa and the first woman with a disability to ever compete in the Miss USA pageant.
The program follows eight of the young girls as they prepare for and compete in this event. I happened upon the show quite by accident, but I consider the show a must-see.
Everyone should feel that good and smile that much watching TV.
When I was a kid, people who visited our house were always amazed by all the rocking…
Chairs, that is.
My mom was usually rocking in hers, and my sister would be rocking in the other one. If either of them ever got up, my brothers or I would take over. Suffice it to say, our family room was always rocking.
We gave more than one person motion sickness, just watching us go.
Imagine if we had had a rocking bed…like this one.
We would have never gotten up in the morning!
