Not Quite Piper’s Enterprise

Sunday, June 28th, 2015 • Filed under Shop Lifting

Can you guys get behind buying stuff in bulk? Do the enormous boxes of twelve different varieties of frozen waffles speak to you from inside the foggy freezer door? Does an eight gallon bottle of salsa hanging precariously off the edge of a shelf appeal to you as it might appeal to an exceptionally litigious individual? If so, then this dumb crime is for you.

Goodbye Hal

How far will anthropomorphizing go? Pixar has assigned pipe dreams to rats. Swiffer has assigned libidos to dusters. M&M’s has assigned genders to chocolate candy. If you thought Disney movies were only the beginning, you probably experience shock and slight disgust every time you turn on your television.

Story of a Lonely Guy

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015 • Filed under Drunks

Recall the time you felt most desperate. I don’t mean adrenaline-inducing, life-or-death, protection of your family type desperate. I mean desperate to get your rocks off. Perhaps it was February 13th or the night before prom and your high school reputation is hanging in the balance when it seems as though all available women have taken a cruise ship to the moon.

Imagine moving in with the significant other you had as a nineteen year old. No matter your current circumstances, you’d have to leave your home immediately and begin a new life with this person from your past.

When you were younger, did you believe your stuffed animals were alive? Now, of course, this idea is creepy to us. However, when I was smaller (and apparently braver), my stuffed animals each had distinct personalities that somehow vanished when I was around. Some even got married to each other.

A Farewell to Arms…and Legs and Butts and Everything in Plain Sight

Do you think literature can be sexy? There is, of course, the novel of our times: 50 Shades of Grey. However, that is neither sexy nor literature. That being said, I can hardly admit to feeling a stirring throughout The Old Man and the Sea or A Christmas Carol. So I guess bookworms just take what they can get.

“I Have Been Touched by Your Kids…and I’m Pretty Sure I’ve Touched Them.”

As unbelievable as it may seem, teachers are actually responsible for instilling morals in students. Although at certain points these morals may seem to be ones such as “Complain about your salary as much as possible” or “Whisper behind folders to your colleagues whenever necessary”, they are actually fostering the development of great minds as you sit reading this.

The Stupidity Has Elevated

Thursday, May 14th, 2015 • Filed under Robberies

If you have a fear of small spaces and a fear of being robbed, I encourage you to stop reading immediately. This dumb crime entails both of these common phobias. The only way to incorporate more phobias would involve the culprit stealing spiders from a purse (arachnophobia) filled with small holes (trypophobia) while outside the house (agoraphobia) while a duck watches (anatidaephobia).
