Hey you! Are you sick and tired of sitting at home, safe and sound in your gated mansion? Frustrated with waiting in a hypothetical line voted on by the CDC that allows “other people” who most likely studied at Phoenix University to get things before you? Are you ready to get back to yelling at the Le Chateaubriand waitress, but this time, mask-less? What if we told you that you could SKIP that line, and get the COVID-19 vaccine before all of the people who truly need it? From Pfizer comes the product everybody is calling “Unfair!” …

The second St. Nick arrived at the dealership and hopped off his Ruber, Rudolph’s new reindeer-hailing start-up, he was greeted by Will, the car salesman.

Greg in his formal wear. The pants make all the difference!

“Girl Dads” are getting a lot of attention these days. It’s a new wave of dads who are embracing the more nurturing side of fatherhood.

Check out these stats: He’s strong enough to punch a hole in the drywall when he loses at Grand Theft Auto. He’s a big history buff, and even named his 1999 Saturn after the “Queen of Porn,” Jenna Jameson. And the only thing he can actually…


Interviewer: Hello everybody! I’m Brian Winters, and today I’m so lucky to have the two Cupids in the studio today. So Cupid, how did you feel when you first heard there was a singer from Louisiana who shared your name with a song that was captivating the nation with easy to do choreography?
