Tis the season for KILLER DEALS

November 24th, 2013 · 78 Comments

Shortly after Denver’s first snowfall of the season, Sharon looked out her window to see her neighbor making a snowman. “I thought he was doing something cute for his girlfriend. Who knew it was actually a frosty political statement about the cold evils of capitalism?”

COUNTDOWN TO BLACK FRIDAY KILLER DEALS!!!!!

Adorable, innit?

November 18th, 2013 · 99 Comments

It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but as Rachel in Victoria, B.C. noticed, nativity scenes are already becoming crime scenes.

I hate to say that and most of you may not even believe it, but there are people they steal

I EARNED THIS.

November 4th, 2013 · 75 Comments

Explains David in California: “Because of an ant problem, Julia can’t keep her candy in her room.” Thus…

If anyone eats my candy I will kill them. Seriously, stop. I didn't get very much candy and I had a terrible Halloween filled with sickness. Eat your own candy. I earned this. FIND YOUR HUMANITY.

The sad thing is…

October 21st, 2013 · 27 Comments

Cristina in California had to smile when she saw the thank-you note her son composed to his friends. How’s that for subtlety?

Dear Conner, Dylan, and Ethan, Thank you for the spiderman legos. I wish I had a Wii too but the sad thing is I don't have one. Your buddy, Chase

And before you start in on “kids today” — I found a thank-you note my own father wrote to his grandparents circa 1958. Check out the P.S. on the back!

PS Thank you for sending Santa Claus money to bring me things for Christmas. Forgot these things: Space station, Drum Set, and Para-Jet. Love Tommy

Another year without the Great Pumpkin

October 17th, 2013 · 43 Comments

Well, it’s that time of year again…time for heartless hooligans to smash pumpkins (and with them, the hearts of small, gourd-loving children).

David in California spotted this sign next to a small field of corn and pumpkins located next to a popular public jogging trail.

Whoever stole the Big Pumpkin you broke a little boy's heart

How do you like them eggs?

April 1st, 2013 · 71 Comments

If you found yesterday’s post too saccharine for your taste, well, here’s a different sort of mother-daughter exchange. Hannah found this card nestled among a basket of Easter eggs that her mom gave her.

To Hannah, Happy Easter from the mother who 'f-cked up' your life and has done 'nothing' for you!

A note from the Easter Bunny

March 31st, 2013 · 57 Comments

Christine from Buffalo says her 7-year-old daughter, Mary, was curious as to whether or not the Easter Bunny pooped chocolate. Yet when this note showed up next to a pile of “droppings,” little Mary was unwilling to taste a sample to find out.

Dear Mary, Your mom forgot to put out carrots, so I got them from the refrigerator and pooped on the floor. Don't be mad at her for forgetting! There was some water on the table, and I drank it because I was thirsty. Love, the Easter Bunny.

P.S. Is leaving carrots for the Easter bunny a thing, like leaving cookies for Santa? I totally didn’t know that was a thing, if it is a thing. Is it?

P.P. S. We can all agree that mall Easter bunnies are totally creepy, right?

Dear Kyle (who doesn’t love me)

February 21st, 2013 · 104 Comments

“I messed up and forgot to get something for my long-distance girlfriend for Valentine’s Day last year,” says Kyle, a college student in South Carolina. Soon after, he got this card in the mail…evidence that his girlfriend had morphed into some unholy hybrid of a 9-year-old girl and @horse_ebooks.

Dear Kyle (who doesn't love me), Happy Valentine's day! I love you, now getchya shitz together so we can cuddle more and not be sad, okay? Presentless and alone (the lonliest evr in the whole, wide, desolate world) [TEARS OF REJECTION]
