With the presidential election less than a week away, candidates are bombarding us from all angles with ads, debates and last-minute pushes to secure votes. (Their efforts are pretty much pointless considering we joined The Pizza Party a while back, but that's besides the point.)
In all seriousness, all this presidential hoopla can be a little overwhelming and upsetting at times. This is especially true if you're a politically-aware four-year-old.
Few things brighten our day more than puppies. They're troopers when it comes to adorably tortuous makeovers, after all. OK, so they might not be superfans of unfortunate haircuts or miniature shoes. But we've discovered something dogs really enjoy-- celebrating their birthdays. What's not to love about party hats and cupcakes made out of dog food and blowing out candles and noisemakers?! Our point exactly.
Dressing up our furry friends means they're usually subject to embarrassment among other pups. However, we think it's the small price they pay for being so darn adorable. That being said, we've already made our Star-Wars-meets-puppies obsession pretty clear, what with the discovery of Ewok dogs and Princess Leia pugs. Could the fantasy flick and canine combo get any cuter?! Luckily for us, yes.
Last weekend, a bunch of celebrities gathered at New York’s Beacon Theatre for 'Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs.' The event helps support autism programs across the US, and what drives the impressive fundraising are the celebrities in attendance. These included Amy Poehler, Stephen Colbert, Carly Rae Jepsen, and host Jon Stewart.
There’s one single treat in the history of all candy deliciousness that makes us feel so torn. Candy corn -- we hate to love it and love to hate it. How is it possible it can taste so bad, yet be so irresistible? It’s a Halloween trick AND treat. (See what we did there?)
Dogs really are man's best friends. They’re adorable and they look out for us humans when things go awry. Recently we’ve met the German Shepherd who found a missing doctor, a Chihuahua who sniffed out two lost girls, and now, the rescue dog who saved a baby’s life.
There are tons of things we love about America. Our grand ole’ country cranks out hysterical, nightmare-inducing shows about mini pageant queens and we throw Big Bird into the political scene, for example. But our recent discovery tops them all-- ladies and gentlemen, we live in the presence of the most recent world champion pumpkin grower.
Robert Kelly is one of those badass guys who's hysterically blunt while being completely sincere. Basically, he's one of the coolest dudes around. Kelly is a New York-based actor and comedian who recently penned a book with his buddies Joe DeRosa and Bill Burr, ‘Cheat: A Man’s G
'Toddlers and Tiaras' is like 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' -- it’s one of those TLC shows you know is downright weird and confusing, but you just can’t help but be sucked in by its hilarity. In fact, little miss Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson is a veteran of the reality series, so that explains a whole heck of a lot.
You know the whole notion that men aren’t emotionally in touch with themselves? These guys in Venice Beach aren't doing a whole lot to dispel it. All they had to do was cry one measly tear and they would win. But they couldn't do it.
Fritos fits the bill of a perfect snack. Now, before you get all snack sassy, just hear us out. They’re crunchy, salty, miniature, AND they’re the ultimate dip-scooper. Could it get any better? No way. That’s why when we heard the folks over at the Texas State Fair wanted to honor the delicious goodness, we couldn’t contain our Frito-loving excitement!
