Weekly Winners.




The brainchild of Lotus, the Sarcastic Mom! Find more weekly winners here!



See that evil glint in Weego's eye? (Weego's the brown one in back) He is so totally considering whacking Roy in the head with the broccoli. He has done it before...



Buy a used car from us, or this giant blue gorilla will go medieval on your ass.



Mr Potato Head has toes. The world is spinning wildly off kilter.



I don't know if Zach is smiling because he is talking to his girl, or because he JUST MADE EAGLE SCOUT! We are very proud.



Unfortunately Abe's jaws do not in fact unhinge, so he was unable to swallow Mojo's head.



It was 39 degrees and it snowed this week. Second time in three years we have had snow in Tucson. The mountains above maybe 4000 feet have snow on them. I don't have any photos, because they look the same as they did last time. Apparently I have enough photos of snow on the Catalinas.



See the colors across the street? Every damn house in this area is a variation of those colors. Somehow it's supposed to be more environmentally friendly -- like the coyotes and javalinas and scorpions and tarantulas and roadrunner and quail that have been displaced by 10,000 humans are okay with it because we live in freaking desert colored houses. Uh huh.

  2. Hey Merry, (can I call you Merry?) my daughter and I wondered why a giant blue gorilla balloon would be a good way to sell used cars...especially a big mean gorilla who looks like he is about to smash something. The Ad world is a mystery to me...
