Frosty fails

Posted: December 6th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

How great is it to come across a cheerful snow person on a field of freshly fallen white stuff? The sight of so much nice ice warms the heart just enough to take the chill off the cold season.

But bringing these frigid folks into the kitchen in the form of holiday treats is tricky. Many have tried, and many have failed.

Thinking of giving it a go? Here’s a useful hint. It doesn’t help to use yellow icing!


Thanks, Jack Davis!

Legendary Mad Magazine artist Jack Davis departed this mortal realm today. He drew many classic Mad covers and contributed countless hilarious images to my favorite magazine of all.

He was also a well-known artist in the world of horror comics. Look how well he captured the greatest monsters of all time!

Here’s his take on Tarzan.

And his anti-smoking look at cigarette advertising. Don’t smoke, people!

Thank you for bringing so much fun to life, Jack Davis!

And by the way…Mad Magazine is alive and well in the 21st Century. Take a look!


Happy Father’s Day!

What are dads up to in 2016? Well, first of all, they’re stacking Cheerios on their babies!

Patrick Quinn is the founder of Life of Dad, a social network just for dads. One day he put a Cheerio on his three-week-old son Maxton’s nose, and a hot new fad was born. So far, the record for Cheerio stacking by a dad on his baby is 16, and only two dads have met that goal so far.

“That seems to be the Everest of Cheerio stacking,” says Patrick, who hasn’t gotten that far yet. “I don’t even know how it’s possible.”

C’mon, Patrick. It’s dads we’re talking about. Happy Father’s Day to all dads everywhere!

What’s in a name? Everything, it turns out. I will never call these animals anything else again!

Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love, and got married. The ceremony wasn’t much, but the reception was excellent.

BOOM!

An invisible man married an invisible woman. Their kids were nothing to look at, either.

BOOM!

What does a clock do when it’s hungry? It goes back four seconds.

AND I’M OUT!


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
