It’s the Thought that Counts — Gift Shopping for that Uncle Who Ruins Thanksgiving

When it comes to dealing with Fox News zombies, just say “NOPE”

I’ve always been an arts and crafts kind of person except I can’t draw, sew or knit.

But I do have ideas, going all the way back to 7th grade, when I designed the packaging for a toilet bowl cleaner called “Heavenly Scent.” And yes, that predates Heavenly Scents, Inc. by about 30 years.

If you saw my crude drawing of angels circling a toilet bowl and primitive typography, you would immediately think “this guy has a real future… in accounting.”

Despite my limited skills, I stumbled into the graphic design and advertising industries — a long story for another time.

Who would have guessed somebody could carve out a career based on dad jokes and some computer skills?

Thanks to the magic of digital art and online, on demand printing, could I start a new career in specialty gifts?

What I can say is that I made more selling one t-shirt than I did on this site for the last two months… after eight years and almost 600 published articles.

I’ve been making fun of the former pussy-grabber-in-chief for a long time.

First, I had “Little Hands” take over season seven of Game of Thrones.

After that, I fantasized about how much better the world would be if Herr Drumpf converted to Buddhism and renounced all his worldly attachments.
