why are vegetables funny?

I think because they’re so humble. I was making breakfast and decided potatoes are definitely funnier than oatmeal. Telling Erik about the Front Yard Ordinance was an easy way to make him mad. “Fascism!” he cried. I couldn’t agree more. Today when he gets home from work, we’re going on a trip, so next week […]
