I’ve Got a Product Just For You!

“When I was walking the other day I found out I could chew gum at the same time!”


And you know what? You can too!

The 7 Taboo Topics

Here’s a few major taboo topics and how I feel about them. I think we should all be willing to talk about things like this in a civil manner. Feel free to disagree and state your own opinion. I’d love to hear it and I promise I won’t bite your head off for giving it.
