February 14th is upon us, so it's time to whip out all the lovey dovey cliches, y'all. We're talking about the stuff we expect on V-Day-- the chocolates, roses and, of course, the proposal stories. It's a pretty cute idea to propose to your significant other on the most romantic day of the year, but with that comes a big, big risk-- that other person might say no. Yikes.
The Super Bowl is easily the greatest sporting and TV event all year, and you know what that means-- awesome parties. Tons of food, tons of people and even more food always amounts to a good time, which is why we're psyched for Sunday.
It's surprisingly rough being a mascot these days. Sure, they're the awesome side entertainment at sporting events, but that puts a heck of a lot of pressure on them. Think about it-- mascots are constantly forced to cartwheel on ledges, do backflips in front of thousands of people and just be downright stupid. It can be awful, especially when things go wrong. Cue: mascot fails.
We're not big fans of winter. The only good part of this season is that it's socially acceptable to grow a burly bush of upper lip hair to keep us warm, but other than that it's just cold, dreary and it's also the season of the flu. Just thinking about the chills, the aching, and the fevers makes us want to curl up and cry for our mommy-- it's awful.
Pizza chains are officially out of control. They're constantly cranking out weird food inventions like crust stuffed with hot dogs and the heart attack-inducing Cone Crust Pizza. It's like they need to up the ante in the game of tomato pies.
We like to think we're pretty funny, despite what our significant others/mothers/everyone we know says. Some people just don't know how to appreciate a well-crafted joke. "You're so corny," and "that's horrifically un-funny" are just funny ways of saying "I love you," as far as we're concerned.
We like to think of ourselves as pretty adventurous creatures. We'll throw back a few fried turkey testicles if the mood strikes, or dunk our heads in a vat of warm urine for a couple hundred bucks. Unfortunately, there are times when our adventurous actions are backed with good intentions, and go completely unappreciated. Like putting icy hot on our babe's vibrator, for instance.
Criminal activity is getting more and more creative by the day. This means trying to dupe cops requires out-of-the-box thinking and, in some cases, a hankering for ravioli. So if you want to have some criminal fun, you'll have to one-up the last crook.
You know that whole "trust fall" game where you fall backwards into someone's arms and he or she saves you from a bad fall that would bruise your behind for weeks to come? It's an exercise that's supposed to increase...well, trust. Recently though, we've discovered that this so-called game isn't all that fun anymore. In fact, we're beginning to question whether or not this "trust fall" fail thing is becoming a trend.
We've said it several times before, and we'll say it again-- news reporters are awesome and super talented, in a variety of ways. So far the rapping weatherman tops our list as one of the coolest reporters around, but we recently discovered a dude who's giving him a run for his money. We'd like to introduce you to the most coordinated dancing traffic anchor around, Bob Herzog.
We love Santa. We really do! He's probably the coolest old guy we know, spending his life making presents, managing elves and eating cookies. Truth be told, we're sort of jealous. The jolly old guy usually looks bright and cheery and not all that scary, which is yet another reason we're fans.
It's been one hell of a great beer week for us. We've learned which brews are awesome gifts (and apology presents for grabbing the wrong "Christmas hams" at the office party) and which ale we should choose to celebrate the impending end of the world. Now, we're stoked to bring you the so-called "world's best beer."
