Sometimes people say, “So you have an online store. What do you sell?” I have a tough time with this question.
I stopped at a St. Vincent De Paul store yesterday, I am told that St. Vincent is the patron saint of smelly used crap?? Anyway, I scored this hilarious old fart mug for 49 cents!
Why the warehouse-store sized orders for stink perfume? I can understand people buying 1 or two bottles of our horrible Stink Perfume to put in the bathroom cabinet, teach a lesson to the snoopers… But why the 6 or 10 bottle orders, often sent to motels? What for? Dare I ask?

I just ran across this “dumb blond” joke. My wife says I need to stop overanalyzing things, but here’s my take on it. First, the joke; A blonde went to an electronics store. asked a clerk “How much is that TV?” The clerk replied, “Sorry, we don’t serve blondes”. The blond was insulted, but she
