Posted by on March 27th, 2015, under EXTERNAL USE ONLY, SNAPSHOTS

Comedy writer Rob Fee poses the question: which is harder to raise, a kid or a dog?

Wallet – Scrabble Scribble #15

Posted by on March 26th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

Every kid picks up and makes up various symbols of adulthood. Things that say they’re all growed-up. They can clearly see that there are some pretty cool things we vertically-superior people can do that they can’t. As well as things we DON’T have to do. Terrible things like holding hands when crossing a street, sit […]

Here’s a painfully funny and accurate before-and-after comparison by @robfee, showing how a person’s Saturday morning goes WITH and WITHOUT the wild, miniature humans we call kids.

Borned – Scrabble Scribble #14

Posted by on January 30th, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

It can be incredibly hard for kids to imagine their parents as children. Which is weird if you think about it, since they can imagine that a potato is a sword. But also not so weird, when you consider that you’ve been a towering giant (though steadily shrinking) to them the entire time they’ve known […]
