We love our parents; we really do. It's just that during those early years, they can seem like the most embarrassing people on the planet. It's tough enough growing up (kudos to you if you can read the word "puberty" without wincing) without lame-o parents humiliating you, but when it comes to two parents in Wisconsin, we have to admit they've surpassed "embarrassing" and jumped straight to "awesome."
We’re self-proclaimed Halloween geeks. But honestly, how can you not be? There are so many ways to celebrate the holiday that by the time October 31st rolls around, our entire lives are defined by creepy stuff and ridiculous garb. Our pets aren’t big fans of the festive takeover, but that’s never stopped us from dressing them up as a turkey dog!
As much as we love babies, there are times when they can be pure sources of terror. Unbearably adorable, charming, way-too-cute-to-get-mad at sources of terror, but terror-inducing nonetheless. In all honestly, we’re a little jealous these miniature munchkins can get away with virtually anything. If we stuck jelly beans up our nose or took it upon ourselves to redecorate the kitchen walls with Crayola, we’d be deemed citizens of Crazy Town, population: One.
There's one thing we know for sure about little kids-- they can make practically anything seem adorable. Scrunched-up, twisted sour faces? Check. A boppin' on a bed rendition of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'? You betcha! Although we're a little dumbfounded as to how this "everything is ridiculously adorable" thing actually happens, we can't help but be sucked into the cuteness every darn time. This is especially true when it comes to Halloween.
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!
Spangles is a darn cute cat. He has a beautiful shade of gray fur, which makes him a stud in the feline world. But the fact that he has crossed eyes, well…that just instantly hooked us. We can’t help but hysterically laugh at the poor little guy’s expression, because no matter what, Spangles just looks silly.
We're suckers for sour faces. Warheads, lemons-- you name it! Although we're fans of any kind of pungent-induced expression, there's something about the way kids react to super sour foods that's just so cute, charming and hysterical.
Pool parties are the best. It’s a chance for kids to have some good old-fashioned fun playing with foam noodles and practicing belly flop techniques. Adults, too. But according to kids down in Florida, they’re even better when alligators are involved.
Remember when we introduced you to the Pizza Hut Crown Crust Pizza? We’d like you to meet Pizza Hut Middle East’s newest massive calorie bomb, the Cone Crust Pizza. Sounds innocent enough, right? WRONG. Wrong wrong wrong. Heaven help us all.
What’s not to love about a California amusement park called Knott’s Berry Farms? With such a magical-sounding name, we can’t imagine things could ever go awry. But then again, we’re sucked in by almost anything even remotely charming.
Unfortunately, Knott’s Berry Farms has let us down.
