Have you noticed that scary bedtime stories are no longer in style? Scaring your children into good behavior is not quite as acceptable as it once was, and parents today are left with the daunting task of finding something, anything, to make our children behave.

I bought Teddy Bear some generic nose strips for him to try out and I believe the man is addicted to the amazing tree-like formations that appear like magic, grown from his very nose. I’m jealous, because for some reason my nose does not create the grand red redwood forests that most noses produce. Only [...]
