I can’t keep up with Halloween costumes anymore. It has gotten out of control. I miss the days when you could celebrate in a simple, homely ensemble—maybe even go as the Ghostbusters if you were feeling fancy and free. Now, one has to be incredibly and specifically creative or they won’t get noticed at all. Continue Reading…

mission-trip-tips

Wade’s Wisdom is a regular humor column by Wade Bearden. Here, he shares his wisdom, knowledge, and intricate understanding of life to readers all over the world. 

“Don’t drink the water.”

“Take the mace out of your bag before going through airport security.”

“You shouldn’t pet the wild monkeys.”

These are all suggestions we hear when prepping for a short-term mission trip. It’s what we’re not told though, that could get us into a wealth of trouble. Information that may or may not be the difference between you having a great time and you wishing you were back home watching reruns of Walker, Texas Ranger. Continue Reading…

There’s an iconic scene at the beginning of Return of the Jedi. Luke and Han are in the clutches of Jabba the Hutt. They are on the verge of being thrown into a deadly Sarlacc pit. Sarlaccs are highly evolved organisms who digest their prey over thousands of years. Its victims are mysteriously kept alive during the entire ordeal, left to die a slow, painful death.

Group text messages are the Sarlaccs of the 21st century. No one ever intends to stumble into a group text message, but once they do, they will never be the same. Continue Reading…

Jesus-easter-bunny

Easter is this Sunday and we’re bound to be talking about at least one of two people: Jesus and/or the Easter Bunny.

Staying in line with the season—and a recent late night host’s retirement announcement—I felt like it would be appropriate to write a David Letterman-esque post about why Jesus is better than the Easter Bunny. Because here on the site, we only report the material that people are talking about. Hope you enjoy this as much as I fought to stay appropriate. Enjoy some Easter LOLz everyone. Continue Reading…

liam_neesons_non_stop

Non-Stop releases this weekend and I’m pretty sure everyone who has a heartbeat is stoked to see it.

Is it the action packed plot? Nope.

The incredible visual effects? Guess again.

What about Oscar Nominated actress Julianne Moore? I know, I know. I could be a comedian.

We’re going to slap down our hard earned cash at Tinseltown because of one person and one person only: Liam Neeson. Sure, Non-Stop won’t be the next Schindler’s List, but it does have Liam Neeson and that’s what everyone loved so much about Schindler’s List. Continue Reading…

Valentines-social-media-posts

Let’s be real. Whether you’re single or in a committed relationship, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can be a bit redundant on Valentine’s Day. Hop on social media and you’re bound to see at least one of three posts:

- “Look at my roses!”

- “Valentine’s Day is dumb. We don’t celebrate.”

- “I’m single. #foreveralone.”

There’s nothing necessarily wrong with either of these (maybe), but they’re a bit boring. Here are 15 social media posts we’d all rather see on February 14 (some warrant brief commentary): Continue Reading…

Wade’s Wisdom: Sleep Tweets Part 2

Wade —  February 4, 2014

sleep-tweets-wade-bearden

Here we go again. “Sleep Tweets” is such a fun blog to write. If you missed PART 1, you can check it out here.

Occasionally, when I’m half awake, I’ll think of a funny tweet. If I have the strength to roll myself out of bed, I feverishly type the joke in my phone before collapsing back on my pillow. What’s great is that most of the time, I don’t remember what I saved the next day. Inevitably, they’ll be moments when I’m scrolling through my notes, or Twitter drafts, and see something that surprises me. Continue Reading…

Wade’s Wisdom: The Myspace Top 8

Remember the Myspace Top 8?

Those were some good times on the World Wide Web.

Because, when you stop and think about it, what could possibly go wrong with being required to rank, in order, how much you love your friends and family? I only see butterflies and rainbows coming out of that situation. Continue Reading…

The screen capture tool has become my best friend these last few months. The internet is pure comedy gold. All you need is a willing heart, an open mind, and the ability to take pictures of your internet browser. Not too long ago, I posted a blog called, “Funny Screen Captures.” Today, you’re reading the sequel.

Buckle up.

If you’re looking at this in a moving car. Continue Reading…

Wade’s Wisdom: The Dad Whisperer

Wade —  November 15, 2013

I used to think I was a baby whisperer. After all, it came natural to me. No baby was too difficult. Fussy, laid-back, or sick. If there was anyone who could handle the situation, I was your guy.

Then the complaints starting rolling in. Continue Reading…
