Dude, Or Douchebag: Family Stick Figures

They're terrible.  They're horrible.  And they're everywhere.  Family stick figures are a menace to society. To me, the more perfect the family seems in sticker form, the more dysfunctional I imagine their reality to be. Like this D-bag who loves Star Wars: Really?  Are you ALL really that into Star Wars?  Then why did I see your kid 'round the back with some Goo Gone & a...

Freak of the Week: Paris Hilton

As I was driving home from work the other day, I was lured into a parking lot by this: Yes, it's a Bentley with a trunk that's vaguely open and no, I didn't peek inside.  Instead, I zoomed in on the crystal encrusted, monogrammed logo & snapped this: Then I realized, this is not just another customized, $200,000 ride.  That "PH" wasn't just for anyone.

Nowhere else is this more evident than...

Freak Of The Week: Purple Reign

You know you've found you're freak of the week when your 76 year old mother says, "Did you see that car?"  I almost replied, "Have you noticed any cars since 1986, Mom?"  But I refrained.  Point is, last Saturday, at the Calabasas Commons, this Econoline Pickup stuck out like George W Jr at a Mensa meeting.  Even Mom noticed: If you're not familiar with Calabasas, perhaps...
