Too much excitement

Thanks to Oddball for picking up the slack for me. My new job started Friday and ho boy do these people need my help. My expressions have gone from “oh” to “oh dear” to “Oh Dear God” to “Oh Dear God NO!” in a very short amount of time. Seriously, how do you not have […]

Sign that we’re winning

Your Biased Headline of the Day

Pennsylvania man, 65, fatally shoots teen who pushed him off bicycle
