EPIC FAIL Naughty Fisher Price Toy Review Mike Mozart of JeepersMedia on YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ldah1w3TE78 It’s rare to want to punch someone in the face as hard as I want to punch this guy. Does the “epic fail” designation refer to the toy? Or to him? (I vote the latter so I can punch the latter.)

http://www.usillygoose.com/nonost.html Tempting, but the only way this would make more fun is if one of my coworkers actually *did* staple it to their face. When the time has come to stop beating around the bush, just ink the stamp using the pad supplied, and stamp your way straight to the point with these No Nonsense […]
