I just don’t get why we have so many socks without a mate. There must be 50 left after The Great Sunday Sock Pairing of 2014, which is crazy. As you can see, I’ve separated the Swinging Singles (or as I like to say, “Singing Swingles”) into three categories: white, various and black.

The folks at RedBubble seem to be the mad geniuses behind the Pinkman and the Brain line of Breaking Bad merchandise and it just sets my imagination afire. Read the rest of this entry
One of my favorite episodes of Seinfeld has always been “The Wait Out.” The episode features guest appearances from Cary Elwes and Debra Messing and features a slightly darker sense of humor for which the show was generally known.
