Pizza Is Its Own Food Pyramid (3 Comics)

Posted by on March 1st, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

When I was a teenager, I could eat an entire large pizza by myself. Not a (violent air quotes) “large” pizza, but an honest-to-hugeness LARGE pizza. It took time, of course. And probably a violation of the laws of physics somehow. Heck, I love pizza so much, I once flew back from New York with […]

Baby’s First Bacon

Posted by on December 29th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

Apologies now to my vegetarian friends, but I think we can all agree that there are similar foods that produce the same effect for you… Listen, we try to eat healthy in our house, and only introduce new foods with our kids when they’re ready, but there are many who would gladly give their kids […]

“This is yogurt. You should see his joy when it’s .” –Avara   My wife sent me images as this mess progressed. It started easily and sort of timid. Then it progressed into a full-blown fist fight with a spoon and a cup of yogurt. You could almost imagine someone insulted his mother and my little […]

We’ve got apps for that. What you may not have realized, is that we no longer need to cruelly limit ourselves to the rare times […]
