Victor and I have had running pun wars since we first got married. One person starts with a terrible pun and the next has to come up with a worse one on the same subject until the other person gives up. Last night I couldn’t sleep so I decided to make a shirt for Victor:
And he was like, “Huh. Looks like you’re making an owlmlette,” and I groaned, “That’s a terrible pun, but owl allow it,” and he said “Fine. Looks like you’re making hot wings,” and I said, “From Hooters?” and Victor stared at me for a second and said, “I just have one question. Hoo left the grill on?” and I sang, “Hoo? Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!” and then Hailey asked how old she had to be to file for emancipation and I was like, “That’s not how puns work, Hailey. Like, you could say ‘HOO do I have to talk to about being removed from this home?’ That would work.” And Victor was like, “Except technically we’ve used ‘hoo’ so that’s just lazy punning. We expect better from you, young lady.” And then Hailey went to her room. Probably to work on her owl puns.
And now…time for the weekly wrap-up!
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- I’m buying #4. I’m blushing at #16.
- Books-A- Million picked You Are Here in their Experts’ Top Picks For March Selection! (Ps. It doesn’t come out for a week and a half but a ton of people are already getting it early. I don’t know why but if you get it let me know what you think?)
- I’m still considering buying it.
- In slo-mo my cat is metal as hell.
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by House Rules Cafe, a board game cafe in Hudson, NY with a library of games available for in-house play. It doesn’t exist yet, but with your help it will. Click here to find out how you can build it. The layout of the cafe will feature a nook reserved specifically for children, and a collection of games that appeals to all age groups, including young adults. As a family-friendly alternative to the usual nightlife, it will be a unique business for Hudson. The menu will consist of delicious comfort foods and the cafe will also have a strong sense of social responsibility, with anxiety and sensory sensitive events, fair trade products, and participation in programs like Suspended Coffees. “This is an opportunity to drive the board game industry in a new direction,” says owner Kathleen Miller, “one that is inclusive, community-focused, and kind.” Sounds pretty bad-ass to me.
