Tracy, I don't know how you find these great stories! They are quite ridiculous, especially that evil frog story! The bored men I've seen firsthand here. And the squirrels taking the selfie(s) is hilarious! :D

I can't get past the squirrels since they are so cute and the pic below is of a typical dober-clown. LOL

Love the pictures of the bored men! That's one of the reasons I leave mine at home, plus I can buy more without worry! *L*

And who among us hasn't thrown toast across the breakfast table? Just me? Oops! ;)

Naida said...

lol Tracy. I do have to wonder what the heck the King of Ink Land was thinking to get inked like that.
And those men shopping, that is sooo my hubby and my son. That's why I leave them home when I shop.

Gina R said...

Love the assault and buttering charge...LOL. Thanks for the smile!

As usual amazed how you manage these stories.
Impressed with the wife and her toast. Got to be careful I guess.

Brian Joseph said...

With all those tattoos I am thinking that that fellow may also have trouble at airport security.

Kelly said...

As I'm not a shopper, I can relate to some of those men.

The pic of the squirrels is just too cute!

As for the toast incident...that's pretty wild. I enjoy my toast too much to waste it that way, but there's obviously a lot more to their dysfunctional relationship.
