Kitten vs. Baby

Posted by on June 24th, 2014, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

[ click the image to enlarge ]   Ahhhhhh, babies and kitties. Not only are they more alike than anyone might have previously thought (or not even cared to think about), they share another deep commonality: they’re everywhere! Well, on the interwebs, at least and for sure. Did you know that it’s now been scientific-ish-ly […]

Posted by on June 6th, 2014, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY

So, we covered what it’s like being a parent and having to answer UMPTEENFAFILLION questions, last time. But this time, let’s talk about privacy.

Posted by on August 14th, 2013, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS

Your pants and undies may be safe watching this, but you will crap in your soul for sure. (Reassuring spoiler: happy ending. Sorry about the spiritual poop mess part, though.)
