Totally drawing a blank here; it’s not Necco Wafers, I know that… Now I’ve got the word preserver stuck in my head, so it must be that candy with lots of preservatives… Man, it’s right on the tip of my tongue…”

Dancin’ Machine!

Even pandas can’t resist doin’ a little chair dance at the office once and a while. Here’s some lucky video of Party Panda doin’ a little scratch mixing.

Oh No — Platform Shoes Are Back?!

I’m Telling You, We’re Lost!

“I told you to take the Traction Avenue exit, but noooo, you said you knew a shortcut, and now we’ve been driving all over God-knows-where!”

“I haven’t even seen a gas station for hours, not that you’d ask for directions anyway, Magellan…”

Soul Patches Not Picking Up What His Parents Threw Down

Everyone just assumes that I love wearing skinny jeans and ridiculous non-prescription tortoise shell eye glasses while reading Ginsberg’s “Howl” to fellow organic coffee-drinkers; none of this would be happening if my stupid parents hadn’t named me such an absurd name.

He’s the butter knife of knives, Jane CL
