Dear Kitten

I imagine that Max and Mia have had a similar conversation with Audrey.

The New Millennium?

During my career, one of my responsibilities included recruiting and hiring new employees. I’ll never forget the candidate who urinated in the alley outside the building after the interview. It was dumb luck that we saw him and of course he had no idea we were watching. We figured there was something wrong with a person who would want to work for a company they thought didn’t have indoor plumbing so we didn’t hire him.

When I left the corporate world, I thought I would miss the craziness. The following video by Allie Stuckey, “The Conservative Millennial” reconfirmed that I made the right decision to leave. Although this video is a spoof, I wouldn’t be surprised if it actually happened.

Well done, Allie!

POT(ty) of Gold

What do a handsome prince, ice cream, unicorns and pooping have in common? Why Squatty Potty, of course! Entrepreneurs Bobby, Judy, and Bill Edwards took on the challenge of improving human waste elimination with their simple invention known as the Squatty Potty, a bathroom stool that makes pooping easier. Anatomically, humans were designed to squat to eliminate, contrary to the posture created when using a toilet. Squatty Potty solves this dilemma by combining the comfort of modern plumbing with squatting.

Against the advice of their investors, the Edwards implemented a marketing campaign focused on a handsome prince and pooping unicorn. After the commercial began to air, sales increased more than 600%. Not only impressed with their success, I thought the commercial was hilariously ingenious so I decided to share it here. (Warning: you may find ice cream less appealing after viewing).

When in doubt, go with your gut and the Squatty Potty!

Cats vs. Dogs

This video illustrates the differences between cats and dogs perfectly. And it’s hilarious!

5 Leading Edge Fashion Trends

I’ve run across some bizarre clothing that is too good not to share. Like a train wreck – you just can’t look away. Be forewarned, once you see these clothes you won’t be able to unsee them.

1. Hairy Swimsuit


2. Men’s Romper


3. Men’s Lacey Clothes

no, No, NO

4. Clothes that make you look naked

a) Naked Tie

Ok, this is kind of funny

b) Naked Dress


5. Detachable Jeans

Underwear is optional

There’s NOTHING attractive about these clothes. Unless you want to shock your friends or embarrass your kids, do NOT wear these outfits! But if you do, please send pictures!

April Fools 2017

Every year companies come up with April Fool’s ads. Following is a compilation of those I found most funny. My favorite video is #1. If you only watch one, choose this. My favorite product is #2 – I want to own one but I don’t want anyone else to have it. #3 is too complicated for me; it may be geared toward a different generation. I find #s 4 and 5 mildly disgusting, although the ads are funny. Remember, as much as you might like what you see, none of these products are real.

1. Reality Glasses


2. Lane Valet


3. Honda Horn Emojis

4. Pet Fur Watches

5. Whopper Toothpaste
