Another Festivus Miracle!

Super Wal-Mart in Marysville, WA, I have no idea why you didn't show up on my trusty Pudding Pop Locator, but I'm so glad I accidentally drove 32 miles and went inside you.

Oh Pudding Pops, how I've missed you.

Earth Day!

Captain Planet and the Planeteers warned millions of cartoon-watching kids from 1990-1992 of the "pillaging of the planet by a largely oblivious humanity." Those kids are now adults. Could this be why people are freaking out more and more about global warming, organic food, carbon footprints, recycling, hybrid cars, and going "green" these days? I'm just saying...

So this Earth Day, remember that "the power is yours!" And to download the sweet Captain Planet eco-rap theme song, click HERE. It's tizzight.

Record Store Day!

Breaking it down.

In case you didn't know, today is the 2nd Annual Record Store Day. According to my good friend Wikipedia, it is "the one day where all the independently-owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music." Whatever, just give me some free vinyls!

Super Size Me

The first McDonald's opened today in 1955. Happy Birthday and congratulations. I'm sure we can all agree that America is healthier because of you. Or at least has better access to cheap food quickly.

Fun Facts:
  • 100 billion McDonald's hamburgers have been sold. If you stacked every McDonald's hamburger sold, it would be really high.
  • The Quarter Pounder With Cheese has the most calories of any McDonald's sandwich (740!) That's about the same as a small squirrel.
  • McDonald's was sued in 1994 by a woman who was burned when she spilled their hot coffee on her lap. It was about this time that people began to hate lawyers.
  • McDonald's has a Hamburger University in Elk Grove, Illinois where one can get a Bachelors of Hamburgology. Children will finally be able to grow up and make their parents proud.
  • Super-Sized meals were discontinued right after the movie Super Size Me came out in 2004. McDonald's denies any connection.

Tax Day!

Uncle C-Biscuit says, "Pay your taxes. The streets around here need a lot of work!"

Dear Cadbury,

Thank you for producing your delicious Cadbury Creme Eggs in the original size this year. They are such a wonderful Easter treat.

Last year's smaller eggs were very disappointing. And even more disappointing was how you tried to trick us on the FAQ section of your website:

Oh really? How do you explain this:

Why would you lie to us? We all knew the eggs were smaller, even if a whole year had passed since the last time we enjoyed the delicious, creamy, gooey goodness that is a Cadbury Creme Egg. You thought you took us for chumps until BJ Novak from The Office exposed your little conspiracy on Conan O'Brien:

(Also, thank you BJ Novak for saying you stock up on candy the day after Easter for 50% off. Now maybe Robin won't get so mad when I come home with 15 12oz. bags of Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs from Target like I did last year.)

So Cadbury, thank you for going back to the delicious original-size Creme Eggs again. And please don't screw with us anymore. Happy Easter!

Conference Report

What a great Conference! I could go on about the wonderful talks we heard, but instead here are some screen captures of some of Conference's lighter moments.

Elder Didier, the comb-over NEVER works!

Hey Young Men General Presidency, why were you holding hands while
you got released?

MoTab, are you telling me you don't have all the hymns memorized?

Behold, the three-armed organist!!!

Oops!!! Nice work, Daily Universe.

We're Expecting!

Yes, that's right. After months of people asking us when we're going to have kids, we can finally announce that we are having...TRIPLETS!!!

Here's an artist's rendition of what they will look like:

I can just imagine people walking up to us in the mall when the little guys are in the special triplet stroller and tell us how beautiful our babies are.

But unfortunately for Robin here's what she will look like:

Yikes! (My camera is messed up and keeps adding the letters "TMZ" to photos)

Obviously Oh Pepper? will soon become a blog devoted to only our future little angels. You can expect to find photos of the same baby shot from multiple angles, home videos of exciting events like laughing and walking, and riveting stories about the triplets' every move in no time.
