Is There A Marshmallow Peeps Overkill Now?

I hate Peeps. They’re nasty. It used to be only a once a year thing and I could deal with that. Now…I feel like we can’t escape those vile little devils. At ALL. They’re EVERYWHERE and ALL THE TIME!

Marshmallow chicks that stare me straight down to my soul.

Peeps needs to stay away from wine. That’s all I got left now. – KW

Jason Aldean’s Son Memphis Goes “Head Over Heels” With His Toy Horse! {Video}

Jason Aldean posted this video of two-year-old son Memphis listening to “Old Town Road” while riding his toy horse through the house. And he’s doing VERY well, until he takes a little spill, thanks to a throw rug. His baby sis Navy doesn’t seem all that concerned. 😉 THANKS, SIS! 😂 – KW

Does Your Dog Have A Potty Mouth?

That old saying that a dog’s mouth is cleaner than a human’s has just come to an end, y’all. For $60 bucks, you can get your dog a collar that cusses every time he barks.

You can now buy a dog collar that will swear every time your dog barks

For every treat your good boy deserved but didn’t get, for every itch that you didn’t scratch, your dog can now vent out all its frustration in cuss words.



I really don’t know who needs this. Seriously, I wouldn’t want my dog to do that. My dog would never agree to this anyway.

But….

Do they make ’em for cats? Just sayin’. – KW

Valentine’s Ketchup Truffles Are A Thing?

Ohhhhhh…please tell me this is a joke. Why would ANYBODY wanna……OMG.



I might consider putting ketchup on scrambled eggs…even though I think that’s totally gross, but never EVER on chocolate. EVER-R-R-R-R-R.

I scoured social media to find ANYONE who might have tried these things. And….




I guess it’s NO JOKE…unless you’re the one getting them for Valentine’s Day.

All I can say is….fortunately, you can’t get them here. Yet. – KW

Would YOU try ketchup truffles?

Sure! Why not?

Oh hell no!

Twitter Lost Its Mind Over The #BroomChallenge

The latest internet challenge is based on an old bogus claim. People were posting that “NASA” announced that on February 10th, you could stand up a broom because of the earth’s gravitational pull…or some planetary alignment. Didn’t take long for Twitter users to post their results.





Y’all…NASA didn’t say anything like that. Standing a broom? It’s simple physics. And you can do it any day of the year.



Eh…but it doesn’t mean you should. 😂 😂 😂
