I was just wondering something: if Kool-Aid Man is filled with Kool-Aid and we drink Kool-Aid…does that make us like vampires to his kind? And if so, why does he offer it so freely? Another thing I was wondering: why does my therapist keep cancelling our appointments?



Got a body in need of washing? …I immediately regret that phrasing. For the love of everything do not answer that question. Regardless of your potentially terrifying answer, you won’t find a betterprice anywhere! Go on, Google it and check…….See? What did I tell you? In your face Wal-Mart! (Please don’t hurt us, we’re very small and frail)



        My great-great-great grand-pappy used to say “It’s hotter than a toad in a microwave out there!” Which is odd considering that microwaves weren’t invented in his time. Maybe he was just a visionary?…Or possibly a time traveller. Maybe we shouldn’t have laughed off his warning that giant lobster-men will take over Earth on July 20th, 2018. Eh, I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Wait a minute. Peppered pickles? But Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, not peppered pickles!

        I don’t fully understand the reason for having scented bubble solution. I mean they last about five seconds before they pop. It’s kind of like that time I painted an emu in rainbow colours.

Tired of Bob slapping your sunburn and asking “Does this hurt?” OF COURSE IT HURTS BOB, YOU GIANT-…ahem…Then perhaps you should look into some preventative maintenance in the form of sunscreen? We have a variety of sprays and lotions and as an added benefit you can throw the empty bottles at Bob’s head. Recycle!



Tired of running full tilt into a closed door while carrying a tray of lemonade? No one does that?…Well excuuuse me Captain Perfect. Magic Mesh allows you to keep your doors open so you can get a lovely breeze without being swarmed by bugs. Unless the bugs are big enough to separate the magnets in which case I would advise you hide in a closet with some Raid while the bug carries off your spouse. Oh they’ll be happier with them anyway.
