The Dangers of Twerking

Posted on September 6th, 2013

Dear Readers, I come to you today to tell you about the dangers of twerking. Yes, I said twerking. I know it sounds like a made up word, but sadly, it is in the Oxford Dictionary.  I know. After hearing that, I too worry about the future of mankind.

Back to School – YAY!

How to Humiliate a Teenager

Posted on August 9th, 2013
