The question on everyone’s mind…

…other than, “Who will be the GOP nominee?”
Or, “Which starburst flavor is superior?” (strawberry) (duh) (like, not even a close call)
Or, “What kind of a world do we live in where the Lindsay Lohan Playboy issue sells out but we can’t get anyone to read The Wall Street Journal?”
Or, “How is it that I can rally 127 Google followers but I can’t get one of my family members to accept my friend request on facebook?”  

All good questions, but the one that I know is burning at the tips of at least 11 of your tongues is, “Did Vern get her kids a dog for Christmas?”  My friend Emily stopped me in church Sunday morning with this precise inquiry, so I will tell you basically the same thing I told her.

He’s the color of brown sugar with soft, droopy ears.  His pug nose is dotted with dark brown freckles, and he smiles ALL the time.  He slept through the night on day one and has snuggled his way even into my cold, dead heart.  

Ladies and gentlemen, meet “Jimmer”.

The kids didn’t think it was funny either.

Well I think he's perfect. And your kids have no sense of humor.

Looks like the perfect dog to me. The worst thing he could leave on the carpet is lint.

He is the perfect dog! No slobber!

Oh, and the best flavor of Starburst would be Kiwi.

GOP candidates.........just will be glad when it's done.

He doesn't poop! You won't regret it.

Maybe not funny but they'll like you a whole lot better because you won't be screaming at them to feed him, brush him or pick up his poop! And he's cute!

As for the GOP candidates, Herman who? Talk about disappearing from the radar. Dang, I was loving hating him, too...and the narrowing of the field certainly doesn't bode well for the folks on SNL and Comedy Central... oh well, there's always Lindsay Lohan to keep us amused, no? ;)

Looks like a perfect pet to me!

Actually, the REAL question on my mind was, "Did Glitter Boobs make an appearance at this year's office Holiday party?"... but yours was good too.
