Every 4 years, it’s a treat to watch the US Women’s National Team (USWNT) make a run at a World Cup championship. Perennial favorites, they’re once again making a dominant run. In the quarterfinals, they’ll face France – the home country and the only team to have defeated them in this cycle. Continue reading
When you ask a happily married couple to think back to their wedding, you’re almost always greeted with a smile as they teleport back to a rosy place in their memory. They go to a nostalgic place and relive the excitement of the day for you.
After the months of planning, invitation lists, day-of crises, vows, speeches, dances, and Aunt Barb getting so drunk she stumbled into the garden and fell asleep, you’re left with a few tokens which spark the memories you’ll never forget. Continue reading
It’s almost graduation season! Most of you probably have family members or close friends who are graduating this year.
Graduating, whether from high school or college (or even kindergarten!), is an important milestone in every person’s life. As such, you’ll want to commemorate this special occasion with a gift that is not only useful but unique and personal as well. In other words, a thoughtful gift. One that not only says “I’m proud of you!” but also one that shows that you had the recipient in mind while choosing the gift.
Not only that, but one that marks the occasion well. A gift they look at and say “that’s from when I graduation!”
Aaargh! What do I get them for Christmas?
You know one of the biggest flaws in the Santa Clause Story? It’s not the flying reindeer. Nor is it him visiting 5500 children a second if he’s supposed to visit all the world’s children in one night. It isn’t even that he’ll have to eat 150 billion calories (which puts even my Christmas binge eating to shame). It’s how he’s ever supposed to select the right present for each and every child.
I mean, seriously. Every time I have to buy something for my family I end up tearing out clumps of hair. And there are only 15 of them, not 1.5 billion. How has the stress not killed him yet? Sometimes I feel like eating 150 billion calories just to deal with the Christmas shopping!
Are you struggling with the same problem? Then maybe I can help. I’ve got some ideas you might like. Now, I want you to imagine me doing jazz hands as I say this. You ready? Bobbleheads. Continue reading
“Maybe I should just get her something for the kitchen,” You mumble, even as you’re disgust by yourself for thinking it. She’s your mom, not your cook! She deserves more than some unimaginative pot or coffee maker. Besides, you already got her that toaster last year. At the same time, you muse, a new appliance is better than a card and some flowers, right?
Yeah, but not by much – and there isn’t much room in the attic for another gift she won’t use. Continue reading
Wow, are weddings tough things to plan! If you’re going through that, then our hats off to you. We thought running Whoop Ass Enterprises was hard, but that doesn’t hold a candle to planning a wedding.
I mean, there is just so much that you’ve got to decide. There’s the cake, the floral decorations, the location, the wedding list, who sits where (for heaven’s sake, don’t put Aunty Liz next to Stew!) and, of course, all the gifts. Continue reading
An interesting recent article on major league baseball’s continued love affair with the bobblehead. Last season just MLB teams along gave away 2.59 million bobbleheads…that’s insane! By my calculations, those bobbleheads, stacked in a line would reach from Waxahatchie, Texas to Natchitoches, Louisiana. Go ahead,check my math, I dare you.
So we make a lot of custom bobbleheads with beards and mustaches, but this Jayson Werth bobblehead that the Potomac Nationals are giving away brings a new meaning to a hairy bobblehead.
The thing appears to have real hair! Hopefully PETA will not need to investigate.
Imagine our displeasure upon learning that we had missed one of the best bobblehead giveaways in recent memory on May 24th. The Akron RubberDucks gave away bobbleheads of the classic 80s band Devo, wearing yellow hazmat suits and the iconic Devo hat.
A few years back we did some research to see what states and Metro areas “consumed” the most custom bobbleheads in the country.
