PUT THE PEPPERS DOWN AND STEP AWAY FROM THE PLAYGROUND

First, who is the sick fuck who put pieces of six habanero peppers in the woodchips of a school playground in Lakewood, Colorado? Second, seriously, this led to the evacuation of the school? Locking down the school would not be sufficient to keep the kids safe from habanero peppers? Makes you wonder how effective a…

TV BITCHES BE TRIPPIN’

Every now and then, I do a binge on Walking Dead through NetFlix. Usually, all the buzz over the end of the current season, gets me back to watching the old seasons on NetFlix. If you don’t want to hear any “spoilers” from Season 1, 2 or 3 of Walking Dead, just stop reading now.…
