Manic Monday Labor the Masses

The creamer in my coffee is congealed and has left an unsightly ring around the middle of my Harry Potter mug. I have 42 unanswered emails and another 14 phone calls to return.

If you’ve never been covered in river mud from off-road 4-wheeling, cleaned 1,000 bugs off the grill of your car from driving down a dirt road at night, or waved your orange vest at the idiot firing his shotgun behind you during deer season, then you probably Continue reading “MANIC MONDAY COUNTRY MOUSE GOES METROPOLITAN”

These odd games thrive and are alive in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Nebraska. Rumors have been strategically leaked that the lesser known RNBKACH (Red Neck Bald Knobber Arkie Corn Husker) Committee is formulating a You Tube application process as of this writing.  Please note, that attempts to imitate these lesser-known games are done at your own risk.
