Hey, do you know what Truck Nuts are? If you do, congrats, you’re from the South like me. YEEHAW AND HOWDY. For the rest of you, Truck Nuts are dangling testicles for your truck.

Today is John’s and my 18th wedding anniversary, and before you ask, yes, we DID get married as toddlers. We wore onesies and tottered down the aisle to the theme from Muppet Babies. It was awesome. Anyhoo, I know what you’re thinking. “Jim,” you’re thinking, – because you’ve again mistaken me for a [...]

Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   We bid farewell to the Olympics this week, but thankfully, this baker will always carry the… uh… …flaming poo wang.   Birthday girl Jenna Claire is allergic to tree nuts. Unfortunately, this means she had to share her cake with “Trez Hats”. (If you thi [...]
